HOPKINS, MN (AP) - Authorities have released the name of a 6-year-old boy who died after he was found unresponsive in a supervised pool at a Hopkins country club.
 
The Hennepin County Medical Examiner's Office says Nicholas Henry Alexander Janzen of St. Paul died as a result of drowning.
 
The death has been ruled an accident.
 
Hopkins police say the boy was swimming Friday evening at a birthday party at Oak Ridge Country Club. A lifeguard noticed he wasn't moving, and club employees and members began performing CPR.
