MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A 16-year-old girl is in the hospital after nearly drowning at Cedar Lake in Minneapolis.

According to the city of Minneapolis dispatch, a teen victim was pulled out of the water after being underwater for an unknown amount of time. The initial call went out around 2:15 p.m.

Dispatch said they do not know the extent of the teen’s injuries, but they were immediately placed in an ambulance.

Witnesses at the scene told WCCO-TV that the girl jumped off the floating dock in Cedar Lake. Her friends told adults on the beach that she never came back up.

Witnesses called 911 and searched the water.

Emergency crews eventually found the girl and took her to the Hennepin County Medical Center, where she is receiving treatment, according to authorities. Her condition has not been released.
