Three Year Old Swept Away & Drowns In Calaveras River

Valley Springs, CA....On 2/10/17 at approx. 10:59 AM, Calaveras Sheriff’s Dispatch Center received a 911 call regarding a 3-year-old female that had fallen into the Calaveras River. According to statements, the 3-year-old, her mother, and an infant male, were walking on a dirt trail in the area of the River of Skulls Nature Trail, approx. ¼-mile below Hogan Damn, when the 3-year-old fell down an embankment into the river and was swept away.

Calaveras County Sheriff’s Deputies and investigators, along with Hogan Rangers and firefighters from Calaveras Consolidated Fire and CalFire responded to the scene and began an immediate search. Hogan Rangers located the child on the riverbank and pulled her from the river, where CPR was started. The child was transported to Mark Twain Hospital where she was pronounced deceased from an apparent drowning.

The Calaveras County Sheriff’s Office wants to reiterate to the public that due to the large amounts of precipitation there is a flood and high water advisory for all creeks, tributaries, and rivers throughout Calaveras County. Caution must be taken when near these sources of water to prevent injury or death to yourself or others.
