    Boy Dies In Possible Drowning
    13-Year-Old Submerged In Lake For About 90 Minutes

    INDIANAPOLIS -- A 13-year-old Indianapolis boy was pronounced dead Wednesday afternoon after he was submerged in an Indianapolis lake for nearly 90 minutes, police said.

    Police divers pulled Michael J. Green from Lake Kesslerwood West, located near 56th Street and Fall Creek Road, around 3:20 p.m. Green later was pronounced dead at Community North Hospital, RTV6's Jennifer Carmack reported.

    The boy was at the lake with his 12-year-old brother and a former teacher of theirs, Cynthia A. Woods, the Marion County Sheriff's Department said.

    The trio were on a pontoon boat on the lake when Green and Woods decided to jump into the water, Washington Township Assistant Fire Chief Howard Marer said.

    "They both dove in the water. The young gentleman did not surface," Marer said.

    Neither was wearing a personal floatation device, though the teacher had at least one in her hands, Marer said.

    Police divers searched Lake Kesslerwood for about 20 minutes before finding a 13-year-old boy 15 feet under the surface. The boy was pronounced dead at a local hospital.

    A 911 dispatcher received a call about the 13-year-old at 2:11 p.m., police said.

    Information on Green's cause of death wasn't immediately known.
