Minneapolis boy drowns in Crosby mine pit lake after chasing Frisbee

- The body of a Minneapolis boy was found Saturday after he drowned in a mine pit lake in Crosby, Minnesota.

The 13-year-old boy went into the water to get a Frisbee when he was swept away by the currents, according to Sgt. DJ Downie of the Crow Wing County Sheriff’s Office. The boy’s family was renting cabins in Crosby near Armour No. 2 Mine.

The boy's father went in to rescue him, but he couldn’t get to the boy in time. Crews were dispatched to search the area around 7:30 p.m. Friday, but they did not find the boy.

Saturday morning, crews resumed the search and found the boy’s body around noon in water that was 92 feet deep. He has been identified as Murdoch Edward Crust.
