Police Identify Girl that Drowned in Wilbraham Pool


WILBRAHAM, Mass. (WGGB) — Police have released the name of a young girl who died over the weekend in what appears to be an accidental drowning.

Around 5:25 p.m. Saturday, a female guest at 14 Shirley Street called 911 to report that her daughter, 7-year-old Estefani Alfaro of Springfield, was in a pool and she was not able to reach her.

Wilbraham Police and Fire immediately responded, and when Officer Justin Wall got to the scene, Zullo says Wall dove into the pool and grabbed Alfaro from the water.

CPR was performed and Alfaro was transported to Baystate Medical Center where she was pronounced dead.

The incident remains under investigation by Wilbraham Police, with assistance from the Mass. State Police.
