A little girl could not be saved after falling in a pool.

Joondalup Senior Sergeant Craig Wanstall said the Prospect Grove property did not have adequate fencing surrounding the pool.

He reported a sliding door at the home had an automatic closing mechanism but it had not shut properly, allowing the toddler outside while her mother was in the shower just after 11am.

He said the girl had been playing with a ball when she fell in.
