A 17-month-old New Jersey girl found floating in a retention pond this week has died from her injuries. Authorities said Neha Anand and her mother were playing with several other children and their mothers when she wandered away Thursday afternoon and fell into the pond, about 100 feet away from her home in North Brunswick.

When they noticed the child missing, the women frantically began looking for her, and the girl's mother soon found her floating in about two feet of water.

The child was taken to Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital in New Brunswick and placed on life support. She was pronounced dead about 3:30 a.m. Saturday.
