12-Year-Old Boy Died After Near Drowning At North Commons Water Park

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) -  Hennepin County Sheriff's Office Water Patrol Division reported a 12-year-old boy hospitalized on June 4 after being pulled from a pool.

Police believe around 5 p.m. at a pool at the North Commons Water Park, located at 1801 James Avenue North in Minneapolis, the boy climbed a fence around the pool and entered the water because the front gate was locked.

Officials say a witness saw the boy at the bottom of the pool and alerted a nearby business to call the police.

Upon arrival, one police officer jumped into the pool and pulled the boy from the water and another officer performed CPR until medics arrived.

The boy was transported to Hennepin County Medical Center and was pronounced dead four days later.

The incident is under investigation.
