FORT WAYNE, Ind. (AP) - The Allen County Coroner’s Office has identified a 3-year-old girl whose body was recovered from a pond south of Fort Wayne.

It said Wednesday that Addison E. Hartman died as the result of an accidental drowning.

Allen County Sheriff’s Department spokesman Cpl. Jeremy Tinkel says the girl had been riding a miniature motorized vehicle with a 4-year-old boy when the vehicle overturned into the pond. The boy ran for help but divers were unable to recover her body from the murky pond until about an hour later.

Tinkel says the small pond had limited visibility due to recent rains that made the water murky.
