Second boy drowns at Joe Pool Lake

Posted: Updated:

A seven year old boy drowned at Joe Pool Lake while swimming with his mother.

Grand Prairie police say Ivan Salinas from Mesquite and his mom were at the swim beach on the Cedar Hill side of the lake.

The mother says Ivan slipped beneath the surface and was under water for about five minutes.

A person nearby pulled him to shore where CPR was performed.

Ivan was not wearing a life vest.

He died at Charlton Methodist Hospital.

He was just short of celebrating his 8th birthday.

This is the second drowning at Joe Pool Lake this year.

Another 8-year-old boy from Mesquite died on Memorial Day weekend.

Police say he was under water for nearly 30 minutes before divers found him.

He too was not wearing a life jacket.
