WELLS COUNTY, Ind. (WOWO): A child was last reported in critical condition after being pulled from a Wells County pond yesterday.

Officers with the Indiana Department of Natural Resources say the girl had been swimming in a private pond in Keystone when she submerged and didn’t come back up to the water’s surface.

A volunteer firefighter pulled the girl out of the water after she had been between 8 and 13 feet underwater for approximately 20 minutes.

Her name and age were not released.

  1. Why wouldn’t the adult watching the poor baby girl jump in to help her or try to find her? Why wait for rescue crews for 20 minutes?
