Eastern Iowa Child, 3, Drowns After Swimming in Stock Tank


JOHNSON COUNTY, Iowa — A three-year-old Iowa girl has died after drowning in a stock tank.

The Johnson County Sheriff’s Office says Abby Miller’s family used the tank as a swimming pool at their rural Iowa City home.

While swimming with siblings Monday, the girl was discovered underwater and unresponsive. Abby’s mother began CPR and when emergency responders arrived she was taken to University of Iowa Hospitals by air ambulance.

Abby died Tuesday in Iowa City. Her family says Abby was able to give the gift of life through an organ donation.

Abby’s funeral is scheduled for Saturday in Kalona.
