MARICOPA, Ariz. – Authorities have identified two boys who drowned in a canal in Pinal County Sunday afternoon.

Pinal County sheriff’s spokesman Elias Johnson said three brothers, 6-year-old Calib Ontario Love, 10-year-old Anthony Michael Love and 10-year-old Emmanuel Stower, were walking near Century and Amarillo Valley roads in Maricopa when Calib somehow ended up in the canal.

His two brothers jumped in to save him and only Emmanuel was able to get back out of the water.

He reportedly ran to a neighbor’s house and told them what happened.

Johnson said the bodies of Calib and Anthony were found very close to where they went into the water.

Anthony would have turned 11 on Tuesday, Johnson said.
