FRYEBURG, Maine (AP) - The family of Maine police officer in critical condition two days after being injured when he was thrown from boat on the Saco River says the 20-year-old officer suffered “intensive head trauma.”

In a statement released Monday to the media, the family of Fryeburg Officer Nathan Desjardins said his mother, father and older brother are with him. Desjardins, who is going into his senior year at the University of New England, is in critical condition.

Desjardins was injured Sunday along with another officer who suffered less serious injuries as they responded to reports of a missing canoeist. The Maine Warden Service says the boat hit something.

Meanwhile, high water hampered the search for 38-year-old Jennifer Bousquet, of South Berwick. Wardens say the search is now a recovery operation.
