Utah Boy Drowned In Wyo. Last Month Found
BYRON, Wyo. (AP) — The body of a 9-year-old Utah boy who fell in the South Fork of the Shoshone River after being thrown from a horse last month has been found.
Park County, Wyo. sheriff Scott Steward said the body of Tyler Hatch was found Sunday afternoon by two searchers in kayaks.
The boy from Eagle Mountain was camping with his family on July 2 near Powell and was thrown while trying to cross the river.
He was spotted submerged in the river hours later in an area with 450-foot high cliffs and a helicopter wasn't able to land there. His body was recovered about three-quarters of a mile downstream from there.
The area has been searched several times but the water levels have dropped significantly since Tyler was swept away.
