LAUDERHILL, Fla. (AP) - A 1-year-old boy is dead after falling
into a South Florida canal.

Lauderhill police say the boy was playing with his 3-year-old
sister in their backyard Sunday morning when he got past a fence
and fell into the canal.

The little girl returned to the house for help, and an aunt jumped in to the canal, but couldn't find the boy.

A diver team pulled the boy out of the water, but it was too late.
