MONTICELLO — A northern Indiana sheriff said boaters rescued a 5-year-old boy who they spotted floating face down in the water.

White County Sheriff Patrick Shafer said a family was boating on Big Monon Creek north of Lake Shafer when they noticed a 3-year-old boy standing naked on a dock. When they drove closer, they saw the other boy and pulled him from the water.

Shafer said the mother of the two boys was unaware they were outside Wednesday afternoon, July 3, because she was asleep in their nearby home in the area about 30 miles north of Lafayette.

The 5-year-old boy was taken to Riley Hospital for Children in Indianapolis for observation.

The boy’s name wasn’t immediately released. Police and child protective services are investigating what happened.

The friends are seventh-graders at Haven Middle School in Evanston, which has been at the center of a controversy over its dress code. Parents and students, including these girls, complain that the school's restrictions on girls' attire, including leggings, is inconsistent and targets girls with certain body types.
