April 19, 2010

Searchers have recovered the body of a 5-year-old boy nearly a week after a boating accident on the Dan River.

The Danville Police Department says Kolton Brim Karnes was found Sunday morning.

Karnes and his father were in a boat that capsized near a dam in Danville on Monday. Authorities say the child's life jacket was torn off by the swift current.

Police say Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries conservation officers found Karnes. The body is being taken to Roanoke for examination.
