Authorities say an Arkansas toddler has drowned after falling into a river in southwest Missouri.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol says 1-year-old Anthony Lemus-Peraza, of Rogers, Arkansas, was pronounced dead Wednesday at a Kansas City hospital.

He was flown to the hospital after he fell into the Elk River Sunday while playing about three miles west of the McDonald County town of Pineville.
