Minnesota (WDAY TV) -- A Brainerd man is dead and a 4 year old Arizona boy saved after capsizing a canoe on a Minnesota river.

The 64 year old's name hasn't been released. People heard a cry for help and rescued the boy from the Gull River, north of Baxter.

He was taken to a hospital. Rescue pulled the man from the river further downstream. He was unresponsive, and efforts to resuscitate him weren't successful.

They both had on life jackets.
