According to numerous outlets, police were called to a report that a child had fallen into a pool in the Beach Park area of south Tampa, Florida, on April 30.

Arrayah was taken to hospital but sadly lost her life a short time later.

Police have said they do not believe the child’s death is suspicious ‘but a purely accidental and tragic incident’, as per the Tampa Bay Times.

Arrayah celebrated her second birthday only two weeks ago when she had a ‘Baby Shark’ themed party, which was attended by family and friends.
