Nidwalden police say the child was with a relative at the time and wandered into the water while being unsupervised.

Police forces from the three cantons that border the lake immediately launched a search – Lucerne lake police used boats while officers from Schwyz and Nidwalden scoured the shore.

She was found over an hour later by divers 9 meters below the surface. The girl was declared dead at the scene.

Investigations are underway.
