A 2-year-old boy was rushed to DeTar Hospital Navarro on Wednesday afternoon after emergency workers and his mother performed CPR on him.

Victoria police and firefighters responded about 2:15 p.m. to a report of a possible drowning along the Guadalupe River downstream from Southwest Moody Street.

The condition of the child was not immediately available.

Sgt. Eline Moya, spokeswoman for the Victoria Police Department, said the unconscious child was on the south bank of the river when rescue workers arrived.

She said police and the child's mother performed CPR as paramedics were preparing to transport him by ambulance.

A dirt boat ramp enters the Guadalupe River at the intersection of Wilden Street and Old Goliad Road - a residential area with a few houses nearby.
