The 7-year-old who was found unconscious in Wirth Lake in Minneapolis on Friday was identified on Saturday as Keylen Rashan Thorton.

The Hennepin County Sheriff’s Office released the name and said Keylen had been transferred from North Memorial Hospital in Robbinsdale to Children’s Hospital and Clinics in Minneapolis.

A spokesman for Children’s Hospital said the boy’s condition was not immediately available. He was found in water four to six feet deep about 2 p.m. Friday, but it was unclear how long he’d been under water, officials said.
