An 83-year-old woman is dead one day after she fell into her swimming pool in her backyard in Scarborough.

Neighbours heard the woman yelling from her backyard and called for help. Paramedics arrived to the house, in the McCowan Road and Brimorton Drive area, about 15 minutes after noon.

Paramedics and neighbours had to break down the back gate to get to the swimming pool. There they found the woman in the pool with her walker. They pulled her out of the water and performed CPR and full resuscitation efforts on her.

She was found without vital signs and was reported dead after 1 p.m. on Thursday.
