Girl dies while playing mini golf

KISSIMMEE, FL (WFLX) - A medical examiner has ruled that an 11-year-old girl, who died while playing miniature golf in Kissimmee, was electrocuted.

Ashton JoJo was on vacation with her family from New York. The girl was trying to get her ball out of a pond at the Orange Lake Resort.

Another tourist heard the girl scream and tried to help, but she was injured himself. "At first, she was trying to talk to her, and then she didn't make any sound at all," said a spectator. "It's hard to think that sort of thing can happen at a beautiful resort. It's just so tragic."

Authorities are still not sure how the water became electrified. The golf course is closed until further notice.
