A boy has died after falling into a lake in a Jones County subdivision Friday afternoon. 

That's according to Captain James Clark with the Jones County Sheriff's Office.  

He says the child, who was under 2 years old, was in the water in the Hampton Lakes neighborhood.  That's off Highway 49.

The child was pulled out at about 5:30 p.m. and rushed to the hospital, where he was later pronounced dead.

Captain Clark said, investigators don't know how exactly the child ended up in the lake.  He says the boy's father was home at the time.

The Sheriff's Office will continue to investigate.
