ERHARD, Minn. (AP) — A 2-year-old boy has died only days after family members pulled him from a lake east of Erhard in northwestern Minnesota.

The Otter Tail County sheriff's office says Derek Dorholt of St. Michael died Sunday night at MeritCare Hospital in Fargo, N.D.

He was hospitalized after relatives found him unconscious just before noon Friday in Eddy Lake, south of Maplewood State Park.

He was visiting grandparents when he vanished. His family searched for him for 10 to 15 minutes before finding him in the water.

He was taken by ambulance to Lake Region Hospital in Fergus Falls, where doctors were able to regain a pulse. He was then flown to MeritCare Hospital.
