The three-year-old boy who drowned in Goodyear Lake over the weekend has been identified as Andrew Durkin of Gilboa, according to New York State Police.
Just before 3 p.m. Sunday, New York State Police were called to Goodyear Lake in Milford for a report of a missing child. State police’s Underwater Recovery Team found the boy in the lake, submerged in about seven feet of water, about 17 feet from a residential dock.
A member of state police performed CPR on the child, and he was then taken to A.O. Fox Hospital in Oneonta, where he was pronounced dead.
Police say the child's death has been ruled an accidental drowning, and no foul play is suspected. The child and his family were at the summer residence with other family, and police say Andrew has an identical twin broher who was dressed exactly the same way at the time Andrew went missing.
The Otsego County Sheriff’s Office, the Milford Fire Department and Milford EMS also responded to the scene and assisted with the search, along with civilians.
Police say the investigation into the incident is ongoing.
