Cloud police: Boy, 7, dies after being pulled from Mississippi River”

St. Cloud police say a 7-year-old boy who was pulled from the Mississippi River has died.

Authorities were dispatched around noon to Riverside Park, across the river from St. Cloud State University.

A boy told police he and another boy were in the river off of Munsinger Gardens when they went under the water, but the other boy didn't come up.

Police learned two brothers, a five-year-old and a seven-year-old, had been playing in river.

Almost a half hour later, firefighters in a rescue boat found the boy unresponsive in the river.

CPR could be seen being performed on the boy, and he was transported by ambulance to St. Cloud Hospital.

The police department first tweeted that officers were on scene at 12:11 p.m. Friday afternoon.

The release said the body will be sent to the Ramsey County Medical Examiner's Office for an autopsy, but foul play is not suspected.
