MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Two people have died in apparent drownings in Minnesota over the weekend. A 7-year-old girl is among the victims.

Authorities say the girl was found unresponsive in a Bloomington lake on Sunday afternoon. She was pulled from the water at East Bush Lake Beach and lifeguards started CPR before paramedics arrived. She later died at Minneapolis Children’s Hospital.

Her name hasn’t been released.

Authorities say two women also died in weekend water emergencies. Thirty-five-year-old Nitaya Keodouangdy of Mounds View was found Sunday in Crystal Bay on Lake Minnetonka, a day after she went missing on the lake. The medical examiner’s office says she drowned.

An 89-year-old woman died after she was found unresponsive Saturday on Long Lake in Orono, but the medical examiner says she apparently died of natural causes.
