GRAND JUNCTION, Iowa — A 3-year-old Iowa boy who'd been enjoying a warm spring day at a lake with his mom and siblings drowned Tuesday.
Greene County authorities said Ransom Cummings was pulled from 5-foot-deep water just 6 feet from a dock at Spring Lake on Tuesday afternoon. Ransom had wandered away from his mom and two siblings on the beach at the Greene County lake.
Greene County Sheriff Steve Haupert said 911 was called about 1:15 p.m., and deputies, firefighters and medics were dispatched to Spring Lake State Park to search for the boy.
Haupert said Ransom had been missing for at least 40 minutes when a firefighter spotted the reflection from the boy's sunglasses on the lake bed. — AP
