ARKANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) - Officials in southern Kansas’ Crowley County say a person has drowned while canoeing in the Arkansas River.

KAKE-TV (https://bit.ly/2babdLa ) says the victim of the accident Saturday near Arkansas City hasn’t been released.

As Arkansas City’s emergency medical services captain, Jeff Sampson says a group of at least 10 people was kayaking and canoeing when one boat overturned.

Sampson says others in the boat managed to climb onto a logjam, but the victim did not survive.
