SUMTER, SC (AP) -- A 1-year-old Sumter girl has drowned after she fell into a mop bucket.

The Item of Sumter reported Saturday that Khianna Benjamin died around 11:30 p.m. Thursday night.

Authorities say Khianna's father woke up Thursday night and saw his daughter headfirst in a mop bucket in the kitchen. Robert Benjamin and his girlfriend, who was not the girl's mother, took Khianna to a neighbor's house and called 911.

Khianna was pronounced dead at a hospital, and an autopsy showed that she drowned. Police Maj. Alvin Holston says their investigation is ongoing.
