Toddler drowns in creek in Noblesville


The Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office is investigating an accidental drowning in the 500 block of Mill Farm Road in Noblesville.

Deputies responded to the area shortly after 1 p.m. today, Oct. 22, on the report of a missing person.

HCSO officials said they believe a toddler and a sibling opened the front door of the house and wandered away while their mother was in the shower.

The mother found one child nearby but was unable to locate the second child.

Deputies dispatched to the call found the missing child in a creek several houses away. They immediately began resuscitation efforts and took the child to medics who continued efforts to revive the child.

The toddler was transported to Riverview Health and has since been pronounced dead. No names are being released at this time to provide time for family notification.

Detectives are still investigating. This story will be updated as more information becomes available.
