OTTAWA, Kan. (AP) – Police are investigating the death of a 10-year-old boy at a northeast Kansas swimming pool.

The Kansas City Star reports that police received a report Saturday night that Devon Lee Rice was missing from an Ottawa golf course. Police found the Ottawa boy submerged in about five feet of water in a swimming pool at GreatLife Golf & Fitness.

The boy was rushed to an Ottawa hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

According to a statement, witnesses said Devon was last seen walking away from the golf course, so initial search efforts focused on that area. Witnesses also said that Devon had been seen swimming with other children.
