Boy Tries To Pull Father From Lake
A 6-year-old boy tried to pull his father from Lake Ray Hubbard Monday, as the man floated face down in the water, the Dallas Morning News reported. Officers spotted the child pulling Gedion Theodros, 37, at about 8:40 p.m. near a boat ramp at Robertson Park. An officer gave Theodros CPR, but he later died at Presbyterian Hospital of Rockwall.
