VAIL, Colorado ” A 3-year-old Kansas girl drowned in the pool of the Eagle Point Resort in Vail last Thursday, according to Vail Police.

Grace Yu was pulled out of the pool and airlifted to Children’s Hospital in Denver, where she died on Friday, said Sergeant Craig Bettis.

No charges will be pressed, and no foul play is suspected.

“The case is closed,” Bettis said. “We ruled it clearly an accident.”

Police said the girl had been in the water for about 10 minutes, but there is no sure way to tell, said Eagle County Coroner Kara Bettis.

The cause of death was ruled as drowning and brain injury. Eagle Point Resort declined to comment on the accident
