RINGGOLD, Ga. -- Authorities in northwest Georgia say a woman and her two grandchildren drowned on a farm in Catoosa County.

Sheriff Gary Sisk says 60-year-old Renee Monroe, 3-year-old Regan Cohen and 18-month-old Jaxson Cohen died Monday when Monroe drove a utility vehicle into a pond on their farm near Ringgold.

Sisk tells the Times-Free Press of Chattanooga that the incident appears to be accidental. Sisk says relatives found the woman and children inside the submerged vehicle and tried administering CPR after pulling them out.

Ringgold is about 17 miles southeast of Chattanooga, Tenn.

Such a tragedy

Such a tragedy to all involved. My heart goes out for these young children and their grandmother who were unable to get out. For the families and friends of these we must pray continually for their uplifting during this time. So so sorry for their loss.

Augusta Chronicle: E-Z Go recalls vehicles.

Be interesting to see if she was operating one of the 30,000 vehicles they recalled due to crash possibility.
