First picture of baby who died falling in garden pond as neighbour speaks of ‘tragedy’

The first picture has emerged of a tragic baby girl who died after falling in a garden pond.

18-month-old Ella-Grace Rimington was found unresponsive at a property in Dollar Avenue, Bainsford, in Falkirk, shortly after 6pm last night.

The tot – known as Gracie – was rushed to Forth Valley Royal Hospital, but died shortly after.

It is understood it was her mum’s birthday earlier this week.

She was pulled from the water by relatives who then tried to administer CPR before paramedics arrived, according to shaken neighbours, reports the Daily Record.

One told the local news outlet: “This is just tragic, absolutely horrific.

“I speak to the grandparents often and they are a lovely family, very family orientated, and always do things together.

“It was the little girl’s mum’s birthday yesterday so they were all celebrating that.”

They went on to say, those present “did everything” to try and save Gracie’s life, with her grandfather administering CPR via instructions from the ambulance crew.

“Everyone in the street is in utter shock and disbelief, we’re all devastated at what has happened.

“I can’t begin to imagine what they all must be going through and my heart breaks for them all.”
