The Oakland County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the death of a 6-year-old girl pulled from Kent Lake Monday afternoon.
Deputies responded to Martindale Beach in Kensington Metropark at approximately 5:30 p.m. on the report of a child who had gone missing. Beachgoers reportedly formed a chain to help look for the girl, while a dive team was also deployed.
After the girl was located in a weedy area, first responders pulled the girl from the water and performed CPR before she was taken to the hospital, where she later passed away.
Michigan State Police also responded to the scene.
