The body of a man was discovered around 8 a.m. Thursday in a canal near Third Street and 16th Avenue, Nampa police reported. Detectives were on the scene and Nampa police were asking members of the public to steer clear of the area.

Meanwhile, a separate tragedy involving water was averted Wednesday thanks to a Boise mother's CPR efforts after her 18-month-old daughter was found floating in a backyard pool. Emergency responders took over CPR efforts when they arrived on the scene near Milwaukee Street and Goddard Road and rushed the child to a local hospital. Firefighters and paramedics said Wednesday evening the child was awake and injuries did not appear to be life threatening.
