Authorities say a fifth-grade student from the Saginaw School District who was on a field trip has died in an apparent drowning at a hotel pool in Mackinaw City.
Police say the child was pronounced dead Tuesday night at a hospital in St. Ignace.
District spokeswoman Safiya Mosley says the boy was with a group of about 45 students visiting Mackinaw City and Mackinac Island. She says the trip was chaperoned by district staff, teachers and volunteers.
Mosley says grief counseling was to be provided at Zilwaukee International Studies School, where the student attended.
Saginaw is located about 85 miles northwest of Detroit and 170 miles southeast of Mackinaw City.
