Midland County Police Investigating Possible Drowning of 4-Year-Old Girl

The Midland County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the possible drowning of a 4-year-old girl at her home in Jerome Township Thursday. 

Police say Autumn Trudell was being cared for by her 16-year-old sibling while their mother was at work. 

Witnesses tell police Autumn had been in the house and had not been seen for a short period of time. The sibling and family friend began looking for her, but did not find her in her usual play area.

They expanded the search area and located Autumn face down in the family pool. The sibling and friend immediately called 911 and began CPR. 

Autumn was taken to the hospital where she was pronounced dead. An autopsy is scheduled. 

Police are continuing to investigate the incident.
