SAN TAN VALLEY, Ariz. (AP) - Authorities have identified a boy who was swept away in a wash behind his San Tan Valley home and died.

Pinal County sheriff's spokesman Elias Johnson says 2-year-old Dylan Brown died Sunday night after being transported to the hospital.

The sheriff's office identified the boy Monday.

Johnson says a neighbor had called authorities to report the child found in the wash.

KPHO-TV reports that a citizen on an all-terrain vehicle brought the boy to emergency crews.
