Authorities say a 6-year-old girl from Missoula has died after a drift boat capsized in the Bitterroot River. Joslyn Sage Farrell died when a boat capsized Sunday in the hydraulic step below a diversion dam between the woodside and tucker fishing access sites. Ravalli County Sheriff Chris Hoffman says the girl and others in the group ended up in the water and were caught in strong currents. Hoffman says emergency crews arrived to find CPR being performed on the girl on a gravel bar downstream. She was transported to a Missoula hospital, where she died. No other injuries were reported.
