A child pulled from Chatfield Reservoir and rushed to a local hospital died on Saturday night.

Andres Patrick Sena, 4, of Littleton was the victim of an accidental drowning, the Douglas County coroner said Monday.  

A report of a missing child possibly in the water went out about 5:35 p.m. Saturday, said Sgt. Ron Hanavan, a Douglas County sheriff's spokesman. 

The child was found near the southeast shore of the reservoir by the Littleton Fire Department's dive team, Hanavan said. The child was transported in critical condition to a local hospital and later died, he said.

No information was available on how the child had come to be in the water. Hanavan said the incident was under investigation.

The Douglas County Sheriff's Office, Littleton Fire Department and Colorado Parks and Wildlife all helped with the search.
