The body of a 12-year-old Winnipeg boy has been recovered after he fell into the water at Sturgeon Falls over the weekend.

Manitoba RCMP say they recovered the boy’s body at around 1 a.m. on Monday.

Family have identified the boy as Usaid Habib.

Habib drowned Saturday afternoon after he was last seen climbing down the rocks and slipping into the water. Police say the teen almost immediately went under in the rapids.

A bystander jumped into the water to provide assistance, but couldn’t bring him safely to shore.
