Son can't be revived, daughter in hospital

The mother of a three-year-old boy whose body was pulled from an Oregon river hours before daybreak on Saturday was arrested and accused of dumping the boy and her seven-year-old daughter off a bridge.

Portland police said Amanda Jo Stott-Smith, 31, was taken into custody at a downtown parking garage.

Police said her car was on the Sellwood Bridge over the Willamette River moments before residents of the area heard the children's screams and a massive search was launched.

A resident who joined the search in his boat found the children nearly an hour after the screams were heard. Rescuers were unable to revive the boy. The girl was admitted to hospital.
