PANAMA CITY BEACH, Fla. (AP) – Law enforcement officials in Florida say an Oklahoma teenager has died two days after the walls of a hole he dug in the sand collapsed on him.

The Bay County Sheriff’s Office reports on social media that 17-year-old Travor Brown died at Panama City hospital Friday.

The News Herald reports that Brown was visiting the area with friends. On Wednesday, beachgoers told Bay County Sheriff’s deputies they’d seen a couple of teens digging in a sand bank at St. Andrews State Park. Later, they noticed a teen’s feet sticking out of the sand and started digging him out.
