6 Year Old Richmond Girl Drowns In Lake Anna

A kindergarten student from Richmond drowned Memorial Day in Lake Anna. The six-year-old girl was visiting the popular Louisa County lake with her grandparents and her teenage sister. Dive teams from Louisa and Spotsylvania recovered her body around 5 p.m. Monday. Major Donnie Lowe of the Louisa County Sheriff’s Office says the girl slipped on steep rocks and got caught in a powerful undertow. An adult bystander jumped into Lake Anna but he could not get the girl out by himself. Lowe says his department notified the child’s mother who was on a cruise in the Bahamas. Authorities have not identified the girl or the name of her family.
