BARABOO, Wis. (AP) _ The Sauk County Sheriff's Office says a 2-year-old boy has apparently drowned in a water tank just outside the Village of Hillpoint.

Authorities say they got a call Saturday afternoon about a drowning at an Amish family farm.

The preliminary investigation shows the boy lived at the farm, and was playing outside when his mother briefly lost sight of him. She went to look for him, and found him floating face-down in the water tank.

Efforts to resuscitate the boy were unsuccessful. His name has not been released.
