FORT WAYNE, Ind. Authorities say a 3-year-old Fort Wayne boy has died after being pulled unconscious from a lake near Fort Wayne.

The Allen County Coroner's Office says Hayden Vogan died Tuesday, two days after being found underwater at Fox Island County Park.

Allen County Sheriff's Department Cpl. Jeremy Tinkel has said investigators believe the boy wandered into the lake at its swimming beach, and they're uncertain how long he was underwater.

The beach has a sign warning swimmers that no lifeguards are on duty.

WANE-TV reports the death marks the fifth drowning in northeast Indiana in less than three months. Four involved victims 18 or younger.
