BRADENTON, Fla. (AP) — Authorities say a 3-year-old boy died after a kayak capsized in Florida.

The Tampa Bay Times reports that the boy fell into the water Saturday near Snead Island in Manatee County.

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission says a kayak with two adults and two kids on board overturned as they were heading back to shore. The adults and an 8-year-old child were rescued.

Officials say the younger child, Caleb Nopal, was found dead about three hours after the search began.
