A kayaker rescued on the James River Monday afternoon has died, Trinity Episcopal School officials confirmed.
Christian Wood was a senior at the private school, officials said in an email on Thursday.
Wood's friend was able to get him out of the water and began CPR as Richmond fire officials arrived on the scene near Belle Isle.
The river was above flood stage and Wood had overturned and was caught in the current.
Wood was taken to a hospital where he had regained a pulse, according to fire officials. He later died, according to Trinity Episcopal School officials.
The school released a statement about Wood's death:
