3rd victim dies in Chattahoochee River drownings

COLUMBUS (AP) -- A child who wandered into the Chattahoochee River in Columbus has died at a hospital, three days after his mother and her 11-month-old son both drowned while trying to save the boy.

Muscogee Coroner Bill Thrower says 3-year-old David Brown died Wednesday.

Police said that the family was fishing on the bank at Rigdon Park Sunday when the 3-year-old went into the water.

Police say the mother, holding her baby, went in to get him and all three went under the water, police said.

Authorities say the mother, 30-year-old Krystal Ann Brown and her infant son Mister Brown both died that day. David Brown died around 1 p.m. Wednesday at Egleston Children's Hospital in Atlanta, where he had been transferred after being pulled from the water.
