Tragedy struck on Long Island today, when a toddler drowned in a swimming pool -- and her nanny was sent to the hospital after trying to save her.
According to police, a handyman working at 2 Beechwood Drive was alerted at about 2:35 p.m. that two people were unconscious in a backyard in-ground swimming pool.
