VIRGINIA BEACH -- A 2-year-old girl is fighting for her life after she was found floating in a pool in Virginia Beach.

Paramedics performed CPR after they got to the home in the 1000 block of Culmer Drive around 7 p.m. Monday. Authorities say the child had been missing 4-6 minutes before being found.

A man who lives across the street says a babysitter banged on the door for help and that his brother, who is in the Marines, went to see what he could do to save the little girl.

The child was taken to Sentara Princess Anne and later transferred to Children's Hospital of the King's Daughters.

She has since been placed on life-support, officials said.
