BROOKVILLE, Ind. (AP) - Authorities say a 5-year-old Cincinnati child has died after being pulled from a reservoir in eastern Indiana.

The Indiana Department of Natural Resources says a 10-year-old girl was swimming Tuesday afternoon at Brookville Lake in Franklin County when she made contact with what she thought was a body. She got her father, who pulled the 5-year-old from the water.

Conservation officers soon found the child’s parents, who had been looking for the child for 5 to 10 minutes at Mounds Beach.

The DNR says the child was taken by air to Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center and was pronounced dead. The death is under investigation.
