Authorities say a 9-year-old girl who was rescued after falling into a northeast Baltimore creek has died.

Baltimore fire officials confirmed to ABC2 that the girl, who has not been identified, died Tuesday.

Witnesses say the girl was walking across a pipe on Sunday afternoon at Herring Run Park when she slipped and fell into the water. The current pushed her into a deep part of Herring Run Creek.
