ABERDEEN, S.D. (AP) - Police in Aberdeen say a child accidentally drowned at Wylie Park Lake.

Authorities on Monday said emergency personnel responded to the scene around 3:30 p.m. Sunday for a report of a child who was non-responsive and possibly had drowned.

Police say people in the area started CPR on the child until paramedics arrived. The child was then transported to a local hospital.

Authorities interviewed witnesses and the Brown County coroner later ruled the child's death an accident.
