The lifeless body of a 2-year-old girl who had been reported missing in Brooklyn's Prospect Park on Saturday was found in a section of the park's lake.
Ruhshona Kurbonova was retrieved from the lake in early evening after she was reported missing at around 1:10 p.m. near the park's boathouse, police said.
Police SCUBA divers searched the lake for the toddler and found her at around 6 p.m.
Ruhshona had been with her 3-year-old brother, who was found soaking wet by a person who called 911 and notified the child's parents. Ruhshona's mother then realized her daughter was missing, police say.
The toddler had been attending a family barbecue in the park.
Onlookers said the girl's mother had to be taken out of the park on a stretcher because she was so distraught upon learning that her daughter was dead.
