Two women and one girl are dead after incidents on Hennepin County lakes this weekend.

Officials were dispatched to the East Bush Lake Beach in Bloomington on Sunday. Emergency responders attempted to resuscitate a 7-year-old girl, said a news release from the Hennepin County Sheriff's Office.

KARE11 reported that people at the beach said the girl was found submerged and unresponsive in the water.

She was pronounced dead upon arrival at Minneapolis Children's Hospital. The Hennepin County Sheriff’s Office is still investigating the apparent drowning.

The body of a 35-year-old woman was pulled from Lake Minnetonka's Crystal Bay around 1:35 a.m. Sunday, according to an email news release from the Hennepin County Sheriff's Office.

Officials had been called to the lake just after 7 p.m. on a report of a missing adult. She was identified Monday morning as Nitaya Keoduangdy of Mounds Views. The medical examiner said she drowned.

This marks the third death on Lake Minnetonka this year.

In a separate incident, officials were called to Summit Park Beach on Long Lake around 6:26 p.m. for a medical emergency involving an adult female.

Emergency responders attempted to resuscitate her, but she was eventually pronounced dead at the scene.

The Star Tribune is calling both of the deaths apparent drownings. The medical examiner will release the identity and cause of death for both women, with the sheriff's office noting the deaths are under investigation.

Boy taken to the hospital

A 3-year-old boy was pulled from Lake Alexander around 4:38 p.m. Saturday, according to the Morrison County Sheriff's Office.

The agency says people were playing on and around a water trampoline when the boy went missing for a "short period of time."

Family found him under the water trampoline and started CPR. He was brought to Children's Hospital in Minneapolis, where his condition is unknown.
