Three-year-old boy found floating in Pinellas lake

A 3-year-old boy drowned Tuesday in a Clearwater apartment complex, deputies said.
Ayush Anantharaman was found floating in a lake near the apartments, deputies said.
Deputies were called to the Bay Meadows apartment complex about 6:40 p.m. after the child's parents noticed he was not in their apartment, according to the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office. The family searched for 15 minutes before he was discovered by his father.
Ayush was taken to All Children's Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
"There does not appear to be anything suspicious in nature," said Cecilia Barreda, a sheriff's spokeswoman. "It appears to be a very tragic accident."
