On Saturday, May 29, Kerrville Police Department officers, along with Kerrville Fire Department personnel responded to the 3300 block of Riverside Drive regarding a drowning.

First responders arrived and learned that a five-year old boy had fallen in the Guadalupe River while fishing with his parent, according to a KPD press release. The report states that the child’s father immediately dove into the water but was unable to locate the child due to extremely limited visibility following Friday night’s thunderstorms.

KFD Technical Rescue Team divers began dive operations and recovered the child’s body at approximately 2:43 p.m. The child was pronounced deceased by Justice of the Peace J.R. Hoyne.

The Kerrville Police Department was aided by the Kerrville Fire Department, the Kerr County Sheriff’s Department, and Game Wardens from the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, all of whom extend their deepest condolences to the family and friends of this child.
