WHITLEY COUNTY — Funeral arrangements have been made for a toddler who drowned at a Whitley County residence this weekend.

Officials believe Lucas Junk, 2, fell victim to an accidental drowning Saturday at a family member’s home, 8009 W. CR 300 S.

Around 1:40 p.m., first responders were called to the residence after Junk’s family found him submerged in a small pond.

Indiana Conservation officers say the boy was outside with his family when they realized he was missing. The family estimates they found him less than 10 minutes after they noticed he was gone.

When emergency crews arrived, they found the family performing CPR on Junk, and he was taken to Parkview Whitley Hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 3:45 p.m.
