Child’s body pulled from Mississippi River in Iowa

August 6, 2018

MUSCATINE, Iowa (AP) — Authorities say the body of a small child was recovered from the Mississippi River in southeast Iowa.

It was pulled from the water Sunday night near Brown’s Island at Riverside Park in Muscatine.

Authorities would not comment on whether the body was that of 2-year-old Hawk Newberry, who fell into the water July 24 from a dock at Schwiebert Riverfront Park in Rock Island, Illinois. He’d been fishing with his family.
