RCMP say the boy was found unresponsive at around 3:20 p.m. and was pulled from the water by lifeguards. CPR was administered, but he was pronounced deceased at the local hospital.

The boy, from Split Lake, wandered off from his group and entered water deeper than what he was able to handle, according to police.

No foul play is suspected.
