Police investigating a call of a missing child at Bruster’s Real Ice Cream in Auburn, Alabama, before 1pm Saturday arrived to find the 3-year-old had been located but was unresponsive.

 

Sadie Grace Andrews was found in a 6-foot-deep in-ground grease trap where she drowned, reports the Opelika-Auburn News. It’s believed to have been an accident, with surveillance footage showing her playing with two of her five siblings in a picnic table-studded grassy area on the property and apparently falling through the lid.

 

She was missing for no more than 10 minutes. AL.com reports on Lee County Coroner Bill Harris’ description of the incident, which occurred during a trip to a location the family had been to previously.

 

Harris says the grease trap’s lid wasn’t locked or fastened in any way, and opened when Sadie stepped on it; the lid then closed with her inside.
