POMPANO BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Sheriff's officials say a woman died and a baby was pulled to safety when the vehicle they were traveling in crashed into a South Florida canal.
Broward Sheriff's officials say the woman had been shot before the Wednesday morning crash.
Someone called 911 just after 2:30 a.m. Wednesday to report that a car had gone into a canal.
Deputies pulled the baby girl from a car seat.
She was taken to a hospital for observation and released to relatives.
Sheriff’s officials say the woman in the vehicle was not the child’s mother.
The woman later died from her injuries at a hospital.
The investigation continues.
