A 12-year-old girl who was in "grave condition" after she got pulled out of a Hollywood motel pool has died today.

She, along her 36-year-old mother and 11-year-old brother, were found pulseless on August 4 at 3:34 p.m. at the Hollywood Premiere Motel located on the 5300 block of Hollywood Boulevard. Four of the woman's children had been swimming in the small 7.5-feet deep pool; however, two of them went into the deep end and struggled in the water. The mother, who didn't know how to swim, jumped into the pool fully clothed to save them.

A passerby and bystander pulled the mother and her two kids out of the pool and performed CPR, but they were not breathing and were taken to the hospital.

The boy is listed in stable condition, while the mother is still in serious condition, according to NBC Los Angeles.
