TROY — Mourners are gathering to remember a 3-year-old girl who drowned Friday after her mother's sports utility vehicle rolled into an eastern Missouri creek.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch says the visitation for Alexandra Gutierrez Moreno will be from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. Sunday at McCoy-Blossom Funeral Home & Cremation Center in Troy. A prayer service will follow at 7 p.m.
The interment will occur later in Michoacan, Mexico.
The patrol says the accident happened on a rural road southwest of Troy.
Afterward, the girl's 29-year-old mother from Troy was able to escape the vehicle and flag down help. But authorities said the creek was swollen from recent rain, and the water's strong current thwarted rescue efforts.
