NORWOOD, N.Y. (AP) - State police say they’re investigating the death of an 8-year-old girl who apparently drowned while swimming off a beach on a northern New York lake.

Troopers say they got a report around 6:50 p.m. Tuesday about a girl who wasn’t breathing after being found submerged at the Norwood Beach Recreation Park on Norwood Lake in St. Lawrence County.

Police say lifeguards found Angelina Jarrett of nearby Potsdam in about 8 feet of water.

Life-saving measures were started by the lifeguards and emergency crews before the girl was taken to Canton-Potsdam Hospital, where she was pronounced dead a short time later.

An autopsy will be conducted.
