NINILCHIK, Alaska (AP) - A 4-year-old boy fell Wednesday into Ninilchik (nin-IL’-chik) Harbor and drowned.

Alaska State Troopers say the child was playing unsupervised in the harbor early Wednesday afternoon and entered the water.

His parents were unloading gear from a fishing boat and started looking for him when they realized he was not with his siblings.

Emergency responders attempted resuscitation for about 45 minutes at the harbor.

He was taken to Central Peninsula Hospital and declared dead just before 5 p.m.

Ninilchik is 38 miles southwest of Kenai.
