A five-year-old girl died Tuesday evening at a family celebration at Klempowsee in Brandenburg. After a two-hour search, the dead child was found in a lake.

When the girl’s absence was noticed, emergency services first searched for the missing child with sniffer dogs and helicopters, the police said on Tuesday night. After a search of around two hours, the girl’s lifeless body was found floating in the water near the shore.

The emergency doctor could only determine the death of the girl. Why it died was initially unclear. However, according to the police, they assume that the girl drowned. The criminal police are investigating. First of all, the “Märkische Allgemeine” reported about it.
