A 31 year-old Colorado mother died Sunday while attempting to save her 11 year-old son who was caught in a strong current while tubing on Clear Creek (west of Denver), according to authorities.

The Golden Police Department identified the victim as Amber Raye Presson of Denver.

According to Fox News, authorities were called to Clear Creek at about 1:15 p.m. as bystanders were trying to pull both the mother and son from the water. Those on scene said they believe the mom hit her head and went under the water.

The 11-year old was removed from the creek and did not suffer any injuries.

According to Fox News, officials said the creek was not at a dangerous level that would prompt a closure.
