Magic Player’s Daughter Critical

April 8, 1998

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) _ The infant daughter of Orlando Magic guard Derek Harper was in critical condition early Wednesday after nearly drowning in the family’s swimming pool.

Fifteen-month-old Daria Harper was breathing only with the help of a ventilator, but her condition had stabilized, according to Florida Hospital Orlando spokeswoman Michelle Edwards.

The infant, youngest of the Harpers’ four children, apparently slipped out of a rear door of her parents’ home and fell into the pool Tuesday evening, officials said.
