Two 5-year-old girls drown in Paulding Co. pool

DALLAS, Ga. - Authorities say two young girls have drowned in a backyard swimming pool northwest of Atlanta.

Police say the two 5-year-olds drowned Sunday afternoon in a backyard swimming pool in Paulding County.

Dallas police Sgt. Bill Gorman says the deaths occurred between 2 p.m. and 2:45 p.m. at a home on Mirage Lane in the Vista Lake subdivision.

Gorman said one of the girls lived at the residence, and the other was the granddaughter of the family's live-in housekeeper.

Police say other family members had gone grocery shopping, and returned home looking for their daughter. Police say the 10-year-old brother of one of the girls found both of them at the bottom of the pool.

Gorman identified the girls as Sophia Juarez and Mia Penoyer.
