Toddler dies weeks after fall into daycare pool

A South Bend toddler who nearly drowned at an in-home daycare center has died.

Skyler Bullocks, 23 months old, passed away on Saturday at a Mishawaka Hospice.

She was found unresponsive after falling into a pool in early August at a home on Bethany court in Osceola.

Care providers performed CPR on the girl before she was placed on a ventilator and flown to Riley Children's Hospital.

The Department of Child Services and police found nine children in the unlicensed daycare center at the time of the incident. Under Indiana law, people caring for six or more unrelated children must be licensed.

The daycare has since voluntarily closed after being served a cease and desist letter from the state.
