Authorities have not released the name of a 9-year-old girl from Round Lake who drowned Tuesday evening while swimming in Fox Lake in Ingleside.
Police responded to the 36000 block of Stanton Point Road about 6:30 p.m. and found adults had pulled the girl from the water near a boat launch, according to a release from the Lake County Sheriff’s office.
The girl was swimming near the boat launch with other children when she went under the water as she walked out further on the boat ramp, the release said.
A friend of the family pulled her out and she was taken to Centegra Northern Illinois Medical Center in McHenry, where she was pronounced dead.
The McHenry County Coroner’s office was doing an autopsy Wednesday, Aug. 28, and those results were not released and her name was also not released.
Lake County Sheriff’s Office is still investigating and is not releasing any other information.
