ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Authorities say a toddler has drowned during a family camping trip in the Rio Grande River.

KOB-TV reports (https://bit.ly/20pfyux ) that the body of the 2-year-old boy was pulled from the river Sunday.

The boy had been reported missing from a campsite near Pilar about a half-hour before searchers located his body in the water.

Taos County Sheriff’s Sgt. Jason Rael says a responding deputy performed CPR and was able to resuscitate the child, but he was taken to a hospital and later died.

The incident remains under investigation.
