A coroner says a 5-year-old New York City girl who was pulled from a Pennsylvania lake by lifeguards last week has died of complications from the near drowning. Lehigh County coroner Scott Grim confirms Brooklyn resident Juliette Harper died Sunday night.

The girl had disappeared beneath the surface of the water while swimming at a private beach at Pocono Lake Preserve in Tobyhanna Township on Aug. 4.

Two lifeguards pulled her from the lake and revived her. She was flown to a hospital.

Grim says Juliette's death has been ruled accidental.
