INDIANAPOLIS -- The Marion County Coroner's Office has released the names of two girls who died at hospitals after being pulled from a suburban Indianapolis retention pond.

The girls were Rosia Mang, 13, and Paw Lin, 11, the coroner's office said.


Greenwood Community Schools Superintendent Terry Terhune issued a statement Thursday saying one of the girls who died was a Greenwood Middle School student. The statement did not identify the girl.

Indiana conservation officers have said the girls became separated Wednesday night from a group that was playing in the pond at the Clear Brook Subdivision in Greenwood and then failed to resurface.

Greenwood police officers and firefighters found the youths in about 15 feet (4.6 meters) of water shortly after 8 p.m. Wednesday in the Johnson County city just south of Indianapolis. Both were hospitalized in critical condition.
