DAVIESS COUNTY, Ky. (5/18/19) — Emergency services were contacted last night regarding a possible drowning in the Lewisport area. A 2-year-child was recovered from a pond and sent by medical helicopter to a Louisville hospital while another toddler was apparently unscathed.

Daviess County Sheriff's Office said dispatch received a 911 call at 7:24 p.m. Friday stating two children had possibly drowned in a pond in the 200 block of North Chestnut Grove Road east of Daviess County.

When the first emergency units arrived at 7:32 p.m., they found several people performing CPR on a 2-year-old boy next to a pond. Yelvington Volunteer Fire and East Daviess County fire department units took over and transported the child to Owensboro Health Regional Hospital, according to a sheriff's office spokesman.

DCSO said while an investigation is underway, initial reports indicate two 2-year-old children were playing outside while the parents were working in the yard. When the children were noticed missing, the parents began searching. Two men that were searching located the one child in the pond and pulled him from the water. The second child was located uninjured prior to the arrival of emergency personnel.

Later the 2-year-old male was flown from OHRH to Norton Chldren's Hospital Emergency Department in Louisville and is listed in critical condition, said DCSO.
