PITTSBURGH (Newsradio 1020 KDKA) - Allegheny County police are investigating but have not filed charges for the death of a 7-year-old girl from Carrick at a private swimming pool in Baldwin Borough.

Little Jessica Basnet was visiting a house in the 5000 of Elmwood Drive.

The Post-Gazette reports a neighboring family threw a party at the pool next door while that family was away on vacation.

Jessica was found unresponsive and died last Thursday at Jefferson Hospital.

The family that owns the pool says the neighbors had been warned to stay out of the pool.
