2-Year Old Texas Girl Drowns In Tragic Accident
A young child has died after falling into a septic tank at an RV Park.
According to the NY Post, a 2-year-old girl fell into a septic tank at Paradise Lagoons RV Park in Aransas, Texas. Charleigh Nicole Nelson, was walking across the lid of a septic tank when she fell into the water 15 feet down.
A press release from the Rockport Volunteer Fire Department states that several local agencies arrived at the scene of the accident at approximately 5:30 PM on Wednesday, February 19.
Several civilians attempted to rescue the young girl before emergency personnel arrived, but were unable to reach her. An hour after emergency crews arrived, a firefighter with the Ingleside Volunteer Fire Department was lowered by rope into a 2 foot-wide hole in the septic tank
The firefighter was able to retrieve Charleigh's body, but sadly too much time had elapsed since she fell in.
Our deepest condolences go to Charleigh's friends and family.
