A 2 year-old child died Sunday morning at Norton’s Children Hospital in Louisville after falling into a pond Saturday evening.
It happened around 7:24 p.m. in the 200 block of North Chestnut Grove Road in the Lewisport area.
Eaton Tindle and another 2 year-old were playing in the yard near a home while the parents were working in the yard. When the family noticed the children were missing, they started searching for them.
Two men found the child in the pond and immediately jumped in and pulled him from the water. The second two-year-old was found unharmed before first respondents arrived on the scene.
Eaton Tindle was rescued from the pond and taken to Owensboro Health Regional Hospital by ambulance and then flown to Norton Children’s Hospital in Louisville.
When first responders arrived on the scene, they say several people were performing CPR on the boy next to a pond.
