A cause of death has been determined for an 11-year-old upstate New York girl who died Wednesday while playing miniature golf in Orlando, Fla.; she was electrocuted, officials have determined.
The child, identified as Ashton Jojo of Latham, N.Y., apparently had reached into a small pond at the Orange Lake Resort to retrieve her golf ball, Florida officials told the Orlando Sentinel.
The Orange-Osceola Medical Examiner announced the cause of death on Thursday.
Orange County code enforcement officers inspected the pond and found possible violations, the newspaper said. It appears that electrical breakers were placed improperly.
Ground-fault interrupter breakers are required for water features that have submerged pumps, Allen Morton, assistant manager of Orange County's Division of Building Safety, told the paper. It appears that such breakers were not used, he said.
