Police say the youngster climbed the banks of the river on Saturday to get help for his father, 50-year-old John Barnett, and the youngster's 3-year-old brother who were swept down the rapidly moving river.
The child said his kayak also overturned.
Cranston police and fire officials and state police and state environmental officials organized a search and found Barnett and his son off Route 95 and Route 37. The father and son made it to the shoreline and flagged down a passing motorist.
