Faribault County authorities responded to report of an unresponsive juvenile in the Bass Lake north shore area where hundreds gathered for an outdoor party.
According to the Sheriff’s Office, dispatch received a call around 12:30 a.m. Saturday of an intoxicated female lying in the yard of a residence.
The girl had to be transported by Winnebago Ambulance to the emergency room at United Hospital in Blue Earth.
“She’s 13 years old and was taken to the hospital for evaluation,” says Chief Deputy Scott Adams. “She was released early this morning around 7 a.m.”
Adams says Winnebago police and Minnesota State Patrol assisted the three deputies who were at the scene.
“It is estimated there were around 1,000 people there,” says Adams.
At this time, no one had been charged or arrested and authorities are continuing to investigate the incident.
Adams says deputies activated squad car “dash cams” when arriving at the scene and are currently reviewing any footage that was recorded.
“We’re still interviewing people tonight,” he says.
