That's after three kids were exposed, making for a scary situation in Parke County.

According to the Bellmore Volunteer Fire Department, it happened Saturday night, just before 7:30.

Emergency crews were called to the main boat ramp at the Raccoon State Recreation Area. That's where they found an unresponsive 10-year-old boy.
