Girl, 12, dies after falling into Shiawassee River

SHIAWASSEE TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - Authorities say a 12-year-old Flint girl has died after losing her footing while trying to walk across a dam and falling into the Shiawassee River at a park in Michigan.

The Shiawassee County sheriff's department says Kyesha Monae Pascal apparently drowned Saturday in the river at Shiatown Park in Shiawassee Township, about 25 miles northeast of Lansing.

People nearby attempted to rescue the girl, but they were unable to pull her from the water.

Her body was found Saturday night.
