UPDATE: Two-year-old dies after being pulled from lake

Posted:

Indiana Conservation Officers say a toddler pulled from a Kosciuscko County Lake has died.

The Department of Natural Resources says two year old Tucker Farmer of Marion Indiana went under the water at Kuhn Lake around 7 o'clock Saturday evening.    

The DNR says Farmer was apparently missing for only minutes when family members found the boy face down in the water.

He wasn't breathing.

Conservation Officers say he was taken by helicopter to Lutheran Hospital in Fort Wayne where he died Sunday afternoon.

A neighbor said it's devastating news for the family.  "It's sad news.  I got a two year old, he's my world.  I couldn't imagine what would happen to him if something like that happened," said Robert Woolums.

An autopsy will be performed Monday.
