FAIRFIELD, Conn. (AP) _ Police say a 10-year-old Bridgeport girl has died after being pulled from Lake Mohegan.

Fire officials say she was underwater for more than 30 minutes before she was found at about 8 p.m. Tuesday.

The lake had been closed Tuesday because of bacteria levels, and that the area where the girl was found is usually closed to swimmers.

Her identity has not been released.
