    Authorities say the body of a child reported missing has been recovered in a Massachusetts river.

    State police say the child's body was found in the Westfield River in Russell at about 7 p.m. Wednesday. The child had been reported missing from a home in town several hours earlier.

    Emergency responders performed CPR at the scene but were unable to revive the child, who was then taken to Baystate Noble Hospital in Westfield.

    A spokesman for the Hampden district attorney's office says the child apparently drowned.

"I don't want you to think I am picking on you because we are part of the master race. You have a gap in your teeth. We are part of the master race, don't you forget that," Klemp said.
