Divers and rescue crews were called to the property in the 11000 block of Thatcher Road, and recovered Campbell’s body just after 6:30 p.m. Sunday.

Police say the boy and a friend were on the pond kayaking when the two kayaks collided and capsized.

Campbell was transported to Meadville Medical Center where he was pronounced dead.

Crawford county Coroner Scott Schell was called to the hospital shortly after the victim arrived.
