A 14-year-old girl died Sunday after being pulled from a community pool in the Wheaton/Glenmont area of Montgomery County, authorities said.

She was found about 3 p.m. in the pool in a neighborhood just east of Georgia Avenue by a lifeguard who had begun life-support efforts, said Pete Piringer, a spokesman for the county fire and rescue service.

The girl was taken from the 2200 block of Georgian Way to a hospital, where she died, said Capt. Paul Starks, spokesman for the county police department. He said her death was being investigated as a possible drowning.
