Water Park Accident: A 34-year-old Huntsville man died at Memorial Hermann Hospital hours after he was found floating on the water unresponsive at Nine Mile Ranch Water Park on C.R. 650 near Kenefick. Liberty County Sheriff's Captain Ken DeFoor said deputies responded to a 9-1-1 call shortly after 1 p.m. Saturday. Liberty County emergency medical personnel performed CPR and reportedly had a good pulse and blood pressure when Timothy Desmond Hodges was loaded onto a Life Flight air ambulance. However, Sheriff's Captain DeFoor reports the Huntsville man died at Memorial Hermann Hospital a couple of hours later.

Hazardous Materials: Authorities responded to a potentially explosive situation Friday afternoon along U.S. 59 north of Cleveland. A Fed Ex truck carrying a chemical called 'liquid peroxide' lost its refrigeration to cool the cargo. That chemical can become volatile if it overheats. At the time, temperatures were in the mid-90s with the heat index at 100 degrees. Liberty County officials closed down both the north and southbound lanes of U.S. 59 and evacuated a small number of nearby businesses. Just before 6 p.m. Friday, another Fed Ex truck with a working refrigeration unit arrived, and the chemical was safely transferred.
