Toddler has drowned in Eureka
A Washington toddler has drowned in Woodford County.
Peoria County Coroner Jamie Harwood said 3-year-old Essence Toft was unresponsive and had no pulse after she drowned Tuesday afternoon in a pond in Eureka.
The girl was pronounced brain-dead Thursday night. An autopsy will follow organ donation.
Harwood said it's unclear how long she was in the water before she was found, but foul play is not suspected.
