Troopers said the toddler was on a raft with a 9-year-old boy and a 5-year-old girl being pulled by three adults who had swam out about 30 feet from shore. 

When the adults turned to swim back to shore, they noticed the girl wasn't on the raft and began to look for her. 

Troopers said none of the children were wearing life jackets. 

Williams' official cause and manner of death are pending investigation from the state Medical Examiner's Office.
