5-year-old boy drowns in Elmore County creek
MOUNTAIN HOME, Idaho (KBOI) —
A 5-year-old child has died after drowning in a creek in Elmore County.
The sheriff's office says deputies emergency crews were called out to the Willow Creek Trail Head off Blacks Creek Road for a report of a child falling into the water.
"Because of the depth and swiftness of the water this time of the year, the 5-year-old child drowned," the sheriff's office said in a statement.
The Elmore County Coroner's office told KBOI 2News that the child was a boy.
