A young girl is dead after life-saving efforts failed following her drowning in Torch Lake Thursday evening.
Michigan State Police responded to the incident at 7:30 after an emergency call was made by a Brighton family camping in the area. The parents noticed their 20-month old daughter had wandered off. MSP Lieutenant Mark Giannunzio says it is imperative to always keep aware of young children, especially near a lake.
The child was found in the water unresponsive. Family and EMS then attempted CPR. The girl was transported to Mott Children’s Hospital in Ann Arbor, Michigan. No names will be released.
