SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - Authorities have identified a woman who drowned in Rapid Creek in western South Dakota and a girl who drowned in Lake Thompson in the eastern part of the state.

Police say 30-year-old Edie Mackey, of Rapid City, drowned in Rapid Creek early Saturday. Authorities say witnesses told them Mackey and another person were swimming at the time.

The Kingsbury County sheriff’s office says 5-year-old Presley Nielsen, of Hartford, died Saturday night after falling off a dock into Lake Thompson. She was at the lake with her family for a family reunion.

Lake Thompson is about 35 miles west of Brookings.
