CADIZ, Ky. (AP) - A 6-year-old boy was found floating in Lake Barkley near Cadiz after he apparently fell from a docked boat.
Kentucky wildlife resources Officer Daniel Richardson declined to identify the victim, but said he was taken to Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville, Tenn.
His condition was not known Thursday evening.
Richardson said emergency medical technicians performed CPR at
the dock and the child's heartbeat was restored at Trigg County Hospital before he was transferred.
Sgt. Bill Snow said the the boy's father apparently locked him in a cabin cruiser at Barkley Marina and walked to the parking lot. When the man returned about 5 minutes later, he saw the boy in the water.
Richardson has notified the U.S. Army so the boy's mother - an
Army captain - can return from Iraq.
