UPDATE: 3 Yr Old Rescued from Little Miami River

SPRING VALLEY TWP. -- A little boy is recovering after he was pulled out of the Little Miami River in Greene County.

A leisurely family canoe trip on the Little Miami River took a horrifying turn Tuesday afternoon when a 3-year-old boy fell in the water.

The child's mother said her little boy was blue and unresponsive when she pulled him out of the water.

Luckily, a nearby canoeist saw the events unfold and called for help.

"Someone was passing by with a cellphone but they didn't know their location. That's why we had to cover such a large area of the river tying to find their location," Spring Valley Township Fire Chief Marvin Moeller told ABC 22/FOX 45.

Four fire departments were dispatched and three boats were launched at separate locations. Emergency responders tell us it took 20 minutes to locate the group and the recovering toddler.

Chief Moeller says it's important to bring your cellphone with you on the water. If you have to make an emergency phone call, it's just as important to know where you are because waterways like the Little Miami River go on for miles.

"Try to be familiar with your surrounding. If you've gone by a street, park, bridge. Give us a location because we have a large area of this river to cover," Moeller explained Tuesday.

And within that area, Moeller says the river can be anywhere from 3 inches to 10 feet deep and 'walking the river' is highly dangerous.

It is unclear if the child was wearing a life vest at the time of the accident.
