ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - A 5-year-old boy pulled last week from Glacier Creek near Girdwood has died.

KTUU-TV (https://bit.ly/1rHBdQC) reports the child died Sunday morning.

The boy disappeared Friday as his mother helped another child into a car seat.

The mother called emergency dispatchers and a search was launched by Girdwood emergency responders.

The boy was spotted from the air in the water on mudflats at the creek’s runoff.

He was flown to Providence Hospital in critical condition.
