SOUTH CUMMINSVILLE, Ohio (FOX19) - The child hospitalized after being pulled from Mill Creek in South Cumminsville Tuesday afternoon has died, according to police.
The incident happened around 3 p.m. The boy was found in about 8-feet of water, crews said, and then taken to Children’s Hospital.
Assistant Fire Chief Anson Turley with the Cincinnati Fire Department said he was driving by the scene when he was flagged down by a friend screaming, “He’s gone under.” He said when they found the boy, he was unresponsive.
Emergency crews performed life saving efforts and immediately transported him to the hospital.
Around 10 p.m. on Tuesday, police announced the boy had died.
“Swimming in the Mill Creek is dangerous. Swimming unsupervised is dangerous. Kids should not have been down there swimming. Not even supervised, they shouldn’t have been down there swimming," Turley said.
The boy was identified Wednesday morning as Kingdesmond Jennings by the Hamilton County Coroner.
