Yesterday morning, July 15, 2024, at just before 8:00 a.m. deputies were called to Dunlap Lake in rural Marion County for a possible drowning. A 3-year-old boy was reported to have fallen into the water and was found in the lake by their father. 

Emergency responders from the Idanha-Detroit Fire District, Lyons Ambulance Service, and the Marion County Sheriff’s Office responded to the rural lake. Life-saving efforts were attempted at the scene, tragically the child did not survive and was pronounced deceased at the scene.

The Marion County Medical Examiner’s Office was called to the scene to assist deputies with the investigation.

We offer our condolences to the child’s family during this difficult time.

Deputies want to remind visitors to recreational areas in Marion County to remain vigilant around water ways and encourage the use of life jackets.
