LAMONT (KWWL) -
The Lamont community is in shock after a 2-year-old drowned in a backyard pool.
It happened around 11 a.m. Wednesday at 935 Jackson St., according to the Buchanan County Sheriff's Office. They believe the girl, Kiarra Starks, was being watched by her grandparents, when she wandered away. By the time they realized she was gone, it was too late.
She was found unresponsive in the pool, and taken to a Manchester hospital. There, she was pronounced dead.
