The body of a 7-year-old girl who was among five family members drowned Tuesday during an outing at Lake Isabella in Kern County has been recovered, a sheriff's spokeswoman said Thursday
Later Thursday, the girl's 5-year-old brother, who had been on life support, died at Valley Children's Hospital in Madera, where he had been taken after being pulled from the lake Tuesday afternoon.
Searchers pulled the body of Lindsey Skaggs from water near a sandbar 100 feet out in the lake Wednesday evening. The family had been playing on the sandbar Tuesday afternoon before the tragedy occurred.
Hospital personnel would not release the 5-year-old's name. Meanwhile, the Kern County coroner's office identified the other drowning victims as the parents, Martin and Charlotte Skaggs, both 45, and two other daughters, Melanie, 10, and April, 8.
