      Details released in Quincy boy's tragic death


      A two-year-old boy was pronounced dead Wednesday after a drowning incident Monday on Quincy's south side.


      According to Adams County Coroner Jim Keller, Pravyn Lance McBride-Meyer died at St. Louis Children's Hospital.


      The preliminary cause of death is accidental drowning, but the Adams County Sheriff's Office is still investigating.


      McBride-Meyer was found in an above-ground pool just before noon on Monday by a daycare provider.


      He was taken to Blessing Hospital and later transported to St. Louis.


      There will be a candlelight vigil to honor McBride-Meyer Thursday at 8 p.m. near the fountain at Clat Adams Park in Quincy.
