Drowning Death: A 4-year-old boy has died as the result of an apparent drowning. Liberty County Sheriff’s Captain Ken DeFoor said the child was reported missing by his grandmother and then was found by his father in a nearby pond. Both Liberty County Sheriffs Department Sergeant’s Joel Davila and Chris Ungles dove into the pond to retrieve the child. In spite of the heroic efforts by both the sergeants and EMS, the child did not survive. Captain DeFoor said they believe the child may have been in the water some 30 to 40 minutes prior to the arrival of the Sgt. deputies. The Liberty County Sheriffs Department continues their investigation.
