    A father who unsuccessfully tried to rescue his twin 9-year-old daughters from drowning in the currents of Galveston Bay has now also died.

    Family members said 33-year-old Hector Suarez died in a Texas City hospital Thursday, four days after the deaths of daughters Samantha and Alexandra at the Texas City Dike. Sister-in-law Linda Lopez tells the Galveston County Daily News that Suarez "is a real hero to all of us."

    Funeral services for all three are scheduled for Monday in Houston, with two public memorials scheduled for Saturday in South Houston and Sunday in Texas City.
