Search for Missing 3-year-old who fell in Roza Canal
SELAH, Wash.- A 3-year-old boy is missing after falling into an irrigation canal Sunday afternoon. Police say the boy fell in the Roza Canal around one o'clock. The mother of the child stood with family and neighbors while search and rescue crews tried to locate her son.
Police were told the child was in custody of his father for the weekend, who lives near the canal. Police say the boy's father turned his back for just a second- and minutes later neighbors heard the little boy screaming. The canal's current swept the boy away before anyone could rescue him -- and he hasn't been seen since. The missing 3-year-old is of hispanic dissent, last seen wearing a red sweater.
