A young boy is dead after what appears to be a tragic accident in a Manitoba provincial park.

His family quickly realized he was missing and a search found the boy in a nearby body of water, said RCMP. Nopiming Provincial Park is 154 km northeast of Winnipeg on the Manitoba/Ontario border.

Emergency responders were called at about 11:30 a.m. and family members provided "medical assistance" until they arrived, but the boy was pronounced dead despite efforts to revive him.
