Authorities Investigating Child Drowning At Stearns County Park

CLEARWATER — Stearns County Sheriff’s officials are investigating the death of a 4-year-old girl Monday.  The girl has been identified as Alyssa Aicher of St. Cloud, her mother is 25-year-old Crystal Aicher of St. Cloud.

Sheriff John Sanner says Clearwater Rescue crews and deputies were dispatched to Warner Lake Park at about 7:45 last night for a missing child. The girl was found unresponsive in the water and was immediately given CPR.

The girl was airlifted to the North Memorial medical Center but was unable to be revived.

Stearns County Parks Director Chuck Wocken says while Warner Lake Park draws a crowd, this is a rare incident.  he says there were still about 200 people swimming at the time of the incident.  He says, like most parks, Warner Lake Park is a swim at your own risk park without life guard.

Wocken says they have only had one other drowning at the park since it opened in 1974.
