SW Ohio boy, 5, dies after car rolls into pond

Posted: Updated:

CINCINNATI (AP) - A 5-year-old boy has died after he was rescued from a car submerged under water for more than 30 minutes.

WKRC-TV in Cincinnati reports crews were called to Surrey Court in Florence around 6 p.m. Friday after reports a car had rolled into a pond with the boy, a 9-year-old girl and a dog trapped inside. The family had been preparing to leave the house.

The girl and dog survived, but the boy was unable to escape. Crews rescued him after about half an hour and transported him to Children's Hospital, where he later died.

A witness told the station anyone within shouting distance was in the water trying to save the boy.

Police say they aren't sure if the car was running or shifted into neutral.
