The mother of an 8-year-old girl who drowned Saturday morning at a Rapid City hotel says the family from the Rosebud Reservation was on a vacation that turned tragic. The death of Jayce Ann Two Eagles of Parmalee remains under investigation.
Lisa Two told KEVN-TV that she was in their room getting ready to check out of the Econo Lodge while her Jayce Ann was with her two older sisters, ages 10 and 13, at the pool when the two older girls discovered Jayce Ann at the bottom of the pool.
TwoEagles says Jayce Ann suffered from a brain disorder, but had been swimming for two years and could swim an Olympic-size pool.
