SAN ANTONIO — San Antonio Police are investigating the accidental drowning of a four-year-old girl at a home on the city's south side. 

The victim has since been identified as Lina Arredondo. 

Emergency crews were called out to a home on Divide Mount just before 10 p.m. Sunday. 

According to preliminary information provided by SAPD, the young was playing in the shallow wading pool alongside the main pool. An unidentified adult told police that they were at a family gathering and they were glancing over to the wading pool where Lina was playing.
