An 8-year-old boy drowned Monday at Cedar Hill State Park.

Police say it was another boy, a friend, who first realized the 8-year-old was missing at Joe Pool Lake. It's believed he was underwater for 30 minutes before he was found.

CPR was started when he was located, and the boy was taken to Charlton Methodist Dallas by ambulance.

Police believe his mom was supervising her son and some other kids in a shallow area, outside the swim beach area.

They say the child was not wearing a life jacket.

The boy died at the hospital.
