Girl injured in lake incident at Cotswold Water Park

A 15-year-old girl remains critically ill in hospital after being rescued from a lake at the Cotswold Water Park in Gloucestershire.

The teenager was pulled from the water on Sunday afternoon by an unknown male, thought to have been part of a group of boys playing football.

It is believed that the girl, from Middlesex, had been playing in the water and had lost sight of her family.

Police are appealing for the boy who helped rescue her to come forward.

A lifeguard from the lake administered CPR until paramedics arrived.

The girl was taken to Swindon's Great Western Hospital for treatment.

The Cotswold Water Park consists of more than 140 lakes created by gravel extraction and covers about 40 square miles.
