A Columbia Basin Dive Rescue team recovered the body of a 13-year-old Pasco boy who drowned at Casey Pond at Burbank.

Walla Walla Sheriff John Turner told KVEW ( http://is.gd/lrfXp8) the boy was with his family Wednesday at the McNary National Wildlife Refuge when he fell in. He couldn’t swim and was swept out to where the pond meets the Columbia River.

The body was found about three hours later. He was identified as Christian Espinoza Comsulo.

It was the second drowning in the area within a week. Officials are still looking for the body of 14-year-old Timothy Bowden who was lost when a boat sank Saturday night in the Snake River near Hood Park.
