RICHFIELD, Minn. (AP) — A 6-year-old girl was critically injured when she fell into a backyard pool in Richfield.

Police say the girl's 8-year-old cousin tried to help her, but both had to be rescued by a neighbor and officers. Authorities say the pool was uncovered and partially filled with water when the girl fell in Sunday morning.

She was rushed to Hennepin County Medical Center. KSTP-TV says the male cousin was also transported, but wasn't seriously injured.
