Jill Ballinger/GAZETTE EDITOR

 A Mother's Day outing at Dawn Lake in Lushmeadows has ended in tragedy for a Merced County family, as their 7-year-old son drowned.

According to Mariposa County Sheriff Doug Binnewies, the boy was pronounced dead at John C. Fremont Hospital around 7 p.m. He was pulled from the water by others enjoying the lake earlier.

Local resident Scott Seymour administered CPR to the child after he was pulled from the water and before rescuers arrived.

The boy and his family were visiting friends in the area.

Full details will appear in this week's edition of the Mariposa Gazette.
