ODNR Officer Jason Lagore

Jason Lagore was an Ohio Department of Natural Resources officer who died from a medical emergency Wednesday morning after an attempted lake rescue in a state park in Highland County. A 16-year-old girl died after falling through the ice Tuesday evening into the water at Rocky Fork State Park, and a 13-year-old boy was hospitalized, according to reports. The park is about 64 miles northeast of downtown Cincinnati.

Jackman said they called in additional units from Hamilton and Franklin counties to help. “The water was 36 degrees. Ya know, you look at water and think, ‘It’s just water.’ The 36-degree water is no different than a three-story house fire. They’ll both kill you just as quick,” Jackman said.

The 16-year-old’s body was recovered about four-and-a-half hours later. The coroner said she drowned.

He is waiting until all of her family members are notified before he releases her name. It took more than four hours before emergency crews found the girl, who had been trapped under the ice, officials said. She was pronounced dead at the scene.

Officers responded at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday to the park on a report of two people who fell through the ice into the lake.
