FORT WAYNE, Ind. (AP) - A diver has recovered the body of 3-year-old girl from an Allen County retention pond that she fell into while riding a small motorized vehicle.

Allen County Sheriff’s Department spokesman Jeremy Tinkel says the diver recovered the body about 4 p.m. Tuesday at the pond south of Fort Wayne.

Tinkel says the girl and a 4-year-old boy were riding the motorized vehicles when the accident occurred. He says the boy went inside a home to alert others, emergency responders were called and a search began of the murky pond and a cornfield.

The girl’s name was not immediately released.
