AUBURN, AL – A 3-year-old girl drowned Saturday afternoon after she fell into an ice cream shop’s grease pit.

On Saturday, 3-year-old Sadie Andrews was reported missing as her family were getting ice cream at Bruster’s Ice Cream shop.

She was last seen playing with her five siblings in a grassy area near the shop that contains picnic tables.

Five to 10 minutes later, someone figured out the girl had fallen into the shop’s six-foot-deep, in-ground grease pit.

CPR was performed on the scene after she was pulled out, but she would be pronounced dead of accidental drowning after being rushed to the hospital.

Surveillance footage would show that as Sadie was playing, she fell through the grease trap’s cover, which was not locked or secured, which closed behind her. Sadie’s family says that the lid was wooden and had rotted through.

Police do not feel foul play was involved and are classifying the girl’s death a tragic accident.

“Her name means ‘God’s thoughtful princess,'” her mother said. “And she really was that — always expressing gratefulness and love for God and other people. She would light up a room with her smile; she walked with a skip in her step. I’ve never met a more joyful child who loved God with all her heart.”

Sadie’s uncle created a YouCaring crowdfunding page to help the family with Sadie’s funeral expenses that has raised over $12,000.

The owners of the ice cream shop are continuing to help investigators and made the following post on their Facebook Page:
