BATON ROUGE - Two children, ages 3 and 4, were taken to the hospital after a drowning incident at an apartment complex.
Deputies and emergency officials were called to Regency Club Apartments at 11555 Southfork Ave. around 7:15 p.m.. The complex is located just west of South Sherwood Forest Blvd., about half a mile south of I-12.

One of the children, a 4-year-old girl, later died at the hospital. The other child, a 3-year-old boy, was still listed to be in critical condition as of Friday morning.
The EBRSO says the incident is still under investigation.
