KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- A young girl who was pulled from a pool at a popular Kansas City water park last week has died, the park's owner said Tuesday.

Oceans of Fun employees pulled the girl from the Coconut Cove pool on July 5 after she was seen to be in distress, according to a statement from Cedar Fair Entertainment Co., which owns the water park.

Fire department responders arrived and continued to care for the girl, who was transported to Children's Mercy Hospital in critical condition.

Law enforcement officials said the girl was younger than 10 years old, according to KCTV.
