FAIRFIELD - Fairfield police say they are looking into ways to increase lake safety after a 10-year-old girl drowned in Lake Mohegan Tuesday night.

Catherine Celina Perez Trujillo was swimming with her family in the north side of the lake when she slipped out of her mother's grasp, going under water near the cascades. Police say the family was swimming in an area that is off limits to swimmers.
