COLUMBIA TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - Police say a 5-year-old boy has died after being pulled from a lake in southeastern Michigan.

Columbia Township Police Chief David Elwell says divers recovered the boy Monday night about two and a half hours after he went missing.

Elwell says the boy was pronounced dead at a hospital. The Jackson Citizen Patriot reports (https://bit.ly/25ypnNG0 ) Tuesday that he is identified by police as Achilles Maxson of Columbia Township.

According to a press release, witnesses and family reported the boy waded from shore to a boat where a relative was. The relative attempted to save the boy when she saw him go under the water, but lost sight of him.
