SEELEY LAKE – A 4-year-old boy has drowned in a pond in Seeley Lake.

The Missoula County sheriff’s office spokesman Capt. Josh Clark says emergency responders were called to the pond near Boy Scout Road in Seeley Lake shortly after 6 p.m. Thursday.

They found the boy unconscious in a pond.

Clark says responders made “valiant lifesaving efforts” but the child was pronounced dead shortly after arriving at a Missoula hospital.

Clark says the boy lived near the pond, but it is unclear if he fell through the ice or fell into an area where the water was exposed.

The boy’s name has not been released.
