Crews find body of Tennessee toddler swept away in fast-moving water

COOKEVILLE, Tenn. — Officials say crews have found the body of a 2-year-old boy swept away by fast-moving water at Cummins Falls State Park in Tennessee.

News outlets report Jackson County Emergency Management officials said in a statement that the child’s body was recovered Monday.

The agency said heavy rains on Sunday made conditions dangerous and led to more than 60 people being rescued at the popular swimming spot. Officials said the search for the boy began Sunday evening but was called off due to weather conditions and low lighting.

Agency spokesman Ethan Burris told news outlets that search efforts resumed at 6 a.m. Monday and crews found the body shortly after 7 a.m.

The boy’s identity hasn’t been released.
