A 3-year-old boy was in critical condition after being pulled Sunday afternoon from the lake at Fox Island.

The boy, whose identity was not released, was pulled unconscious from the lake by a swimmer after noon, according to Cpl. Jeremy Tinkel, spokesman of the Allen County Sheriff's Department. A person started CPR on the child until medics arrived. They took the boy to a local hospital in critical condition. It was unclear how long he was underwater, according to Tinkel.

The Indiana Department of Natural Resources and the sheriff's department are continuing the investigation.
