In a note to club members, Ansley President Andy Feinour wrote,
“Last night we experienced a tragic event at the pool with the passing of a young girl. At this time, we ask for your thoughts and prayers for the family members and friends impacted by this event. One of the great things about Ansley is our ability to rally around and support one another in difficult times. This spirit was evident last night in the members and staff that assisted on the pool deck and in the many that spontaneously gathered in prayer. May we continue to show our support for the family in the coming days.”
The Fulton County Medical Examiner’s office has identified the girl as Elliott Githens of Atlanta.
A 6 p.m. Sunday prayer vigil for the family has been scheduled. The Ansley Golf Club pool is closed on Saturday.
