Galveston Boy Dies after Falling in Creek

A 6 year-old Galveston boy has died after being pulled from a creek last night. Authorities say the boy was with his family at Galveston Town Park and had been playing near the creek when he fell into the water and was unable to be located. First responders arrived on scene a short time later. Forty-five minutes after the initial 911 call, first responders located the boy in the water and began CPR. The boy was transported to St Vincent Hospital in Kokomo where he was pronounced dead. Conservation Officers want to stress the dangers of flood waters and swift water and the importance of avoiding those areas.
