ALTUS, Okla._An eight-year-old girl has died less than 24 hours after she was hospitalized in critical condition.

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol said Tuesday the child was wading in the water with her grandfather Monday when she stepped off into some deep water. Troopers say the grandfather was able to get her out of the lake and start CPR. The girl was taken by ambulance to Quartz Mountain Medical Center, then airlifted to Oklahoma City.

The girl's name was not released.
