Girl in extremely critical condition after being pulled from Lake Havasu, sheriff's office says

A young girl from California was found four feet underwater in Lake Havasu on Saturday, the Mohave County Sheriff's Office said in a Facebook post on May 27.

At around 2 p.m., first responders headed out to London Bridge Beach for reports of a missing child. When they got there, they saw the child was found and CPR was being done on her.

The sheriff's office says the girl was in a designated swim area with other kids when "older juveniles" lost sight of her. A family member found her on the lake's bottom, about 4 feet down.

The girl was initially taken to Havasu Regional Medical Center and was then flown to a Las Vegas hospital. She's in extremely critical condition, deputies say.

No more information is available.
