The child was found unresponsive over the weekend in the shallow end of a pool.       

Park patrons were shocked to learn the news.

Knoebels spokesman Karl Beagle says, "When anything happens in the park we take it very seriously.  All of our guests are kind of like family to us."

The child was found in three feet of water.  He'd been in the pool for several minutes and officials think he may have suffered a medical condition before entering the water.

An autopsy is being performed today.
