Child critical after being pulled from Fox Island lake

A 3 year-old-child was in critical condition after being pulled unconscious from a Fox Island lake Sunday.

The Allen County Sheriff's Department responded to the lake shortly after noon, according to a news release. Witnesses said a swimmer discovered the boy underwater and pulled him to shore. A civilian performed CPR on the child until medics arrived.

Medics took the boy to a local hospital in critical condition, according to the release. It was unclear how long the child, whose name was not released, was underwater. The Department of Natural Resources and Allen County Sheriff's Department are investigating.
