WESTMINSTER, S.C. (AP) — Authorities say a toddler has drown in a lake on the Georgia-South Carolina line.

WYFF-TV reports that the drowning happened Sunday afternoon on Lake Hartwell.

The coroner in Georgia’s Stephens County identified her as 19-month-old Charlotte Elizabeth Scott of Toccoa, Ga.

Emergency management officials say they responded to Tabor Boat Ramp on the South Carolina side of the lake for a reported drowning.

An autopsy was planned by the Georgia Bureau of Investigation’s medical examiner to determine the official cause of death.
