The Daviess County Sheriff's Office confirms an 8-year-old boy drowned while at a birthday party this afternoon at Diamond Lake. 

Authorities say Blaine Jewell and another child were playing in a pool just before 3:00 p.m. Sunday afternoon, throwing a ball back and forth when he went underwater. Authorities say the other child tried to help him out of the water.

He was pulled out of the water and the coroner says some two men tried CPR. He was then taken to Owensboro Medical Health System where he was pronounced dead shortly after.
