Search crews on Tuesday were working to recover the body of a 5-year-old Tacoma boy who fell into a river while camping near Randle over the weekend.
The boy, who has not been identified, was riding a motorcycle around his campground Monday when he got too to close to the Cispus River and was swept downstream.
His 32-year-old father jumped into the water after him but could not reach him. The father was carried about a half mile downstream before he was able to reach the shore and pull himself out of the chilly water.
Searchers Monday night found the boys helmet snagged on a log jam about a mile downstream from where he fell in, according to the Lewis County Sheriffs Department.
The boy was wearing full protective riding gear and a helmet when he fell in.
Darkness fell before crews could continue the search but they started again early Tuesday morning.
The campground is an unimproved site about 10 ½ miles from Randle in Lewis County.
