CHARLOTTE, N.C. — A 13-year-old girl died on Wednesday after drowning in her apartment complex’s pool in east Charlotte, CMPD officials say.


Paramedics arrived at the scene at the Villa Villa Apartments on Montego Drive around 4 p.m. to a call for a possible drowning on June 16th.

Police say 13-year-old Tiffany Alegria was rushed to the hospital, but did not survive.

Friends say the girl could not swim, and that there were many people at the pool that day, but didn’t notice she was drowning until it was too late.

Alegria’s family has set up a GoFundMe to help cover funeral costs here.
