4-year-old dies at hospital after near-drowning incident

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – A 4-year-old boy died after being taken to the hospital following a report of a near-drowning incident.

The Jefferson County Coroner's office identified Darryn Kihnley as the victim. His autopsy results were consistent with drowning, the coroner said.

Louisville Metro Emergency Medical Services and the Louisville Metro Police Department were called to Beech Drive in the Lake Dreamland neighborhood around 8 p.m. June 21 on a report of a near-drowning, according to Carey Klain, a spokeswoman for LMPD.

The child was visiting family at the house and swimming, according to a neighbor who was there when the incident occurred. Other kids who were swimming alerted everyone the boy was at the bottom of the pool.

Several people worked to rescue the boy said the neighbor, who is a retired firefighter. Police said the boy was taken to Kosair Children's Hospital where he later died.

LMPD continues to investigate the situation.
