DUNSTABLE — A 20-month-old child was pulled from a small pond on Main Street Friday evening after she went missing for very short time, according to police.

Police Chief James Downes III said police were called to 417 Main St. at about 6:30 p.m. for reports of a possible child in the water in a small pond in front of the home.

When officers arrived on scene, a father, who was soaking wet, and a mother were holding their 20-month-old daughter, who was also wet.

“It appeared the daughter was missing for a very, very short amount of time,” Downes said.

The parents found their young daughter in the water and pulled her out.

The girl, who was conscious and alert, was treated on-scene by police and fire officials for hypothermia, Downes said.

She was brought to Lowell General Hospital by ambulance for observation.

Downes said the latest information police received on the condition of the girl was that she was under observation and not in critical condition.

Downes declined to release the name of the young girl.

He said the parents were deeply distressed.
