NATIONAL CITY, Calif. (AP) — Authorities have identified a 7-year-old boy who died after he fell off his father's fishing boat in San Diego Bay and was struck by the propeller.

The San Diego County medical examiner's office says he's Sebastien Felix of Bonita.

The boy was returning from fishing with his father, uncle and a family friend Sunday afternoon. The 20-foot boat was docking in National City when the boy fell overboard and was hit by the propeller.

His uncle rescued the boy but he died at a hospital.
