(BEDFORD) - A benefit fund has been set up for the family of 5-year-old Zack Colvin of Bedford, who drowned at Lake Monroe Monday while spending the afternoon with family members at the Paynetown beach area.

The boy was found in about 5 feet of water in the swimming area. He was later pronounced dead. The cause of death given was drowning.

It was the second drowning in a local lake within a week. The body of 17-year-old miles Halsted of Bloomington, was pulled from Griffy Lake last Thursday afternoon.
