(News-Register Staff)  Cesar Campuzano, a 15-year-old freshman at Newberg High School, died Thursday morning at 7:35 a.m. of complications resulting from Monday's incident when he was pulled from the Willamette River at Rogers Landing after being in the water for about 30 minutes, according to Capt. Tim Svenson of the Yamhill County Sheriff's Office.

"This is an unfortunate ending to an already tragic event," said Sheriff Jack Crabtree. "My thoughts and prayers are with the Campuzano family today as they deal will the loss of their child."

The Newberg School District has counselors on hand to assist students with dealing with this event.  They have also worked with the family church and have set up an account for donations in Cesar's name at the First Federal Bank in Newberg. Funeral service information is not available at this time.
