Authorities say a 3-year-old boy pulled unconscious from Ruedi Reservoir has died.

The Aspen Times reports that Pitkin County Sheriff's Office Patrol Director Jeff Lumsden says the boy's family was packing up to leave Dearhamer Campground on Sunday when a fisherman found the boy's body in the water.

Lumsden says the fisherman and two people nearby began performing CPR on the boy. He was taken to Aspen Valley Hospital and then flown to Children's Hospital in Denver.

Authorities declined to identify the boy. He died in the hospital on Monday afternoon.

The family is from Parker.
