Police on Long Island are investigating the death of a woman with Down syndrome who was found floating face down in a swimming pool. Suffolk County police say witnesses told investigators that the 26-year-old woman was in the pool with other adults and children at a home in Holbrook on Saturday.

Police say the witnesses said the victim was wearing a life jacket but was left unattended when the others got out of the pool to eat on a nearby deck.

Police say someone noticed the woman floating in the pool about 10 minutes later.

Police say the woman was rushed by ambulance to a hospital. They say she was pronounced dead about 1½ hours later.

The woman's death remains under investigation.
