BOTHWELL – A baby is recovering after a near-drowning in a canal.

The Box Elder Sheriff’s office says a mom was walking with her four children and their dog in Bothwell, which is to the west of Tremonton.

The one year old was in a stroller and the other kids on bikes.  They came to an intersection and one of the children did not stop.

The mom let go of the stroller to help, and the stroller rolled into a canal by the road.  The baby came out of the stroller and went through the culvert under the road.

The mom got the baby out of the water and a passerby with medical training performed CPR. They say it did revive the baby.

The baby went first to Bear River Hospital and then was flown to Primary Children’s Hospital as a precaution.
