Child drowns in Lake Edna Monday

On one of the first sunny days when temperatures even hinted at the summer to come, a tragedy took the life of a 3-year-old boy in Nisswa.

The child was reported to have drowned in Lake Edna, Nisswa officials said. The alarm was raised about 6:30 p.m. Monday. First responders and law enforcement responded to the scene on the lake’s east shore.

Lake Edna is a small lake, about a couple hundred acres just west of Highway 371.
