POLAND, Maine (AP) - Police in Maine have identified a 13-year-old boy as the victim of a drowning death at a state park.

Police say Rayan Issa, of Lewiston, died Tuesday at Range Pond State Park. They made the announcement on Wednesday morning.

Rayan was a seventh grade student at Lewiston Middle School. A preliminary investigation indicated that he was playing in the water with friends within a buoyed swimming area when he went under water.

A life guard on duty and staff tried to find Rayan, but were not successful. He was later pronounced dead at a hospital in Lewiston after his body was located by firefighters.

Police say the boy was at the state park as part of a school field trip.
