A 2-year-old child drowned in an above ground pool during a large family gathering at a home in Bronson. The home owners at NE 85th Street were hosting the party, when the toddler was located by another child who notified an adult. The Levy County Sheriff's Office received the 911 call at 7:13 PM. Deputies and EMS personnel worked with the Shands Cair helicopter personnel to set up a landing zone at Bronson Elementary School so the child could be transported by air to Shands Hospital at the University of Florida. The child was pronounced dead at the hospital.
