5-year-old dies after being found unresponsive in pool area, Richland County coroner says

A child died Sunday after being found in the pool area of an apartment complex in Columbia, according to the Richland County Coroner’s Office.

Capri Robinson, a 5-year-old Columbia resident, is the child who was found unresponsive and died, Coroner Naida Rutherford said Tuesday in a news release.

The child was discovered by the pool at the Wildewood South Apartments in the 100 block of Sparkleberry Lane, according to the release. That’s in Columbia, in the area between Two Notch Road and Exit 80 on Interstate 20.

There was no word about when the child was found, and what time of day the 5-year-old died.

Information about Capri’s cause of death has not been made public.

Rutherford said the “tragic incident,” remains under investigation by both her office and the Richland County Sheriff’s Department.

Multiple messages left with the sheriff’s department seeking information about the child’s death were not returned.
