The Madison County Sheriff's Office has announced that the Edwardsville toddler who was found submerged in a lake last week has died. 2-year old, Lukas Pinski died yesterday afternoon at a St. Louis hospital just days after he and his twin brother wandered away from their Edwardsville home.
According to the Sheriff's Office, a 911 call was received at 3pm on May 2nd from a home located in the 3900 block of Cherokee Trail in Edwardsville. The caller reported that her two, 2-year old, grandsons had walked away from their home and could not be found. While the caller was on the line, one child was located beside a pond, the other was found in the water near the bank. C.P.R. was administered at the scene until the child could be transported to Anderson Hospital before being airlifted to a St. Louis hospital where he remained in critical condition until the time of his death.
Authorities are awaiting further information from the St. Louis Medical Examiner's Office as they continue their investigation.
