ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Thirteen year old Fred Brown is the victim of an apparent accidental drowning Sunday afternoon.

The Albany Police Department is investigating how the 13-year-old Northside Elementary School student drowned. 

It happened around noon in the 400 block of Maxwell at a holding pond.

Grief counselors were at Northside elementary school Monday working with students, faculty,  and staff.

"You don't gauge or measure how much grief is there, but the principal has reported to me that the students, staff and family are all having a difficult time with this loss," said DCSS Spokesperson R. D. Harter.   

Police say Fred was with his older brother when he caught a fish and slipped into the pond.      

The District Attorney's office child death investigation team is handling the case.
