By The Associated Press
RINGGOLD - Authorities in northwest Georgia say a woman and her two grandchildren drowned on a farm in Catoosa County.

Sheriff Gary Sisk says 60-year-old Renee Monroe, 3-year-old Regan Cohen and 18-month-old Jaxson Cohen died Monday when Monroe drove a utility vehicle into a pond on their farm near Ringgold.

Sisk said that the incident appears to be accidental. Sisk says relatives found the woman and children inside the submerged vehicle and tried administering CPR after pulling them out.

Ringgold is about 17 miles southeast of Chattanooga, Tenn.
