HICKORY, N.C. (AP) - A 4-year-old Catawba County boy has died two days after he was pulled from Lookout Shoals Lake.

Officials said the boy’s parents were nearby when he was found in the water Saturday evening. His name has not been released.

Sheriff Coy Reid said the boy was swimming with other children when he went under the surface of the water. Investigators think the boy was in the water about 10 minutes.

He was taken to a hospital where he died Monday afternoon.
