A brief statement released Tuesday evening says family members found the boy unresponsive in a holding pond near Corcoran at about 4:20 p.m.

Sheriff's deputies and Corcoran police responded but paramedics were unable to revive the boy.

Authorities say the medical examiner's office will release the boy's name and cause of death.
