Authorities say the infant was resting in a tent with his father and mother at the Beaver Falls Campground when a woman backed her van over and through the tent. The mother and baby were dragged under the vehicle.

The child was taken to Redwood Falls Area Hospital, where he was pronounced dead. The mother was in stable condition. Their names haven't been released.

Authorities say they've arrested the woman who was driving the van. She's in the Renville County jail pending formal charges.
