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
"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.
