The Fresno County Sheriff's Office said that the child was left unattended near the water at Skaggs Bridge Park and went missing for over 30 minutes. Authorities pulled the 4-year-old out of the water unconscious when the child was found.
The child was originally pronounced dead, but emergency workers administered CPR and airlifted the 4-year-old to Valley Children's Hospital. However, the child died a short time later.
The child was not wearing a life vest.
