COLUMBUS, Ind. (WISH) — A 2-year-old girl who was pulled from a Columbus pool this week has died, the Marion County Coroner’s Office said Thursday.

Two-year-old Jazzilyn Jenkins was found unresponsive around 8:15 p.m. Tuesday in an above-ground, 4-foot swimming pool in the 5100 block of Willa Way.
