091519 Child Drowning Victim Revived (680x454).jpg

A 3-year-old boy is undergoing hospital treatment after he drowned and was unresponsive, but was revived by Buna First Responders and paramedics over the weekend. It happened at about 3:30 Sunday afternoon in a pond near a house off of County Road 720, between Buna and Evadale.

Jasper County Sheriff Mitchel Newman said on Monday that it's believed that the toddler wandered off and then fell into the water.

The child was flown from the scene by medical helicopter to Texas Children's Hospital in Houston where he was, at last word, said to be still undergoing treatment.
