San Joaquin crews search for 2 possible drowning victims

FRENCH CAMP, CA - San Joaquin County sheriff's deputies are searching for a 4-year-old boy and 25-year-old man that may have drowned Saturday around 4:45 p.m.

The two were at a family gathering at the Dos Rios Park near the San Joaquin River when the 4-year-old fell in, said San Joaquin County sheriff's deputy Les Garcia.

The 25-year-old family member jumped into the water to try and rescue the child, said Garcia; however, neither resurfaced after being submerged.

Rescue crews are treating the search as a recovery operation.

Saturday, crews searched the water and bank areas for the two victims until 8:30 p.m. with no results.

The search resumed Sunday morning.
