The Associated Press

        CHILLICOTHE, Ohio — A 4-year-old girl who wandered away from her mother and was found floating in a lake Tuesday afternoon was pronounced dead at a hospital, Ross County sheriff Ron Nichols said.

        Keesta Campbell was not breathing when she was pulled from Pine Lake at Tar Hollow State Park. The Chillicothe girl was taken by helicopter to Adena Regional Medical Center, where she was pronounced dead.

        The victim's mother, Lynette Campbell, who was tending to two of her other children when the girl wandered away, called for help; another person found the child in the water and tried to revive her, the sheriff said.

        Officers said the girl was under water for as much as 10 minutes.
