COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - An Ohio family is mourning for a toddler who drowned in a pond on the same day her mother gave birth to her brother.

Authorities in Marion County, which is north of Columbus, say 18-month-old Jaylynn Adamson had been staying with a relative while her mom was at the hospital.

Lt. Jason Dutton of the Marion County sheriff's office says the little girl was found in the pond Friday morning. She was pronounced dead at Marion General Hospital, where her mother was in labor.

David Adamson, an uncle of the children's father, tells The Columbus Dispatch that the girl's mother gave birth to a son later that day.

The sheriff's office isn't saying who found the little girl in the pond or releasing other details about the drowning.
