A 3-year-old has died after being pulled unconscious from a west-central Minnesota lake, authorities said Monday.

The child was in Eagle Lake on Friday afternoon when other people there got the child out of the lake and began cardiopulmonary resuscitation in the swimming area, the Otter Tail County Sheriff's Office reported.

Emergency responders arrived at the lake, about 25 miles southeast of Fergus Falls, and took over lifesaving efforts. The child was taken by air ambulance to a Twin Cities hospital.

The child's identity in the presumed drowning was being withheld until family notifications could be completed, the Sheriff's Office said.
