The death of a 25-year-old North Huntingdon woman who drowned Friday in a residential swimming pool has been ruled accidental, according to the Allegheny County Medical Examiner.

The cause of death for Ashley Vasunda was drowning as a result of seizures caused by an unspecified medical disorder, forensic investigator Alison Bixby said.

According to North Huntingdon police, officers and North Huntingdon EMS responded to a call of a residential drowning at 2:30 p.m. in the township's Ridge Road area.

Police officers and emergency personnel pulled Vasunda from the pool. She was taken to UPMC McKeesport, where she was pronounced dead.
