Greene County Boy Dead After Drowning



A 3-year-old Greene County boy is dead after drowning in a lake. Greene County authorities say Ransom Cummings was pulled from 5-foot-deep water just six feet from a dock at Spring Lake on Tuesday afternoon. Greene County Sheriff Steve Haupert says 911 was called about 1:15 p.m., and deputies, firefighters and medics were dispatched to Spring Lake State Park to join the search. Haupert says Ransom had been missing for at least 40 minutes when a firefighter spotted the reflection from the boy's sunglasses on the lake bed. Cummings was pronounced dead at Greene County Hospital in Jefferson.
