LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) — A Kentucky coroner's office says an 11-year-old boy has died after being pulled from a pond at The Lexington Cemetery.
Media outlets report that Lexington police say the boy fell into the water Sunday afternoon.
Police told WKYT-TV that the boy and two other children were believed to have been fishing at the pond.
Lexington Fire Battalion Chief Joe Best says a team of divers helped to recover the boy, who was taken to the hospital with life-threatening injuries.
The Fayette County coroner's office said on Monday that D'Shannon Davis was later pronounced dead at the hospital.
This is the second time in a week someone has fallen into a pond at the cemetery. Last week, a man died after he slipped and fell into the water.
