A toddler who drowned in a swimming pool at her home in Antioch on Sunday night has been identified today as 1-year-old Angelia Hodges, according to the Contra Costa County coroner's office.

Angelia would have turned 2 years old this month, a deputy coroner said today.

An autopsy conducted on her body this morning confirmed that she died from drowning, and Antioch police were calling her death a tragic accident.

Police were called to the child's house at about 8:20 p.m. Sunday, but were not releasing details about how the incident occurred or the location of the home.

Angelia was transported to Sutter Delta Medical Center, where she was pronounced dead.
