MCLENNAN COUNTY (June 30, 2014) Authorities Monday identified a 12-year-old boy whose body was recovered from the water at a popular Central Texas cable park as SirLemuel Calhoun, 12, who was from Dallas.
The boy’s family discovered the youngster was missing at around 5 p.m. Saturday at the BSR Cable Park on Old Mexia Road outside of Waco.
The boy’s shoes were found near a swimming area.
Park employees and the sheriff's deputies searched the area without success.
An off-duty Waco firefighter came out with dive equipment and found the boy’s body under a flotation device in the middle of the pond.
An autopsy was ordered.
The park is hosting a fundraiser for the boy’s family that will start at noon Friday and will continue until after a fireworks display at around 10:30 p.m.
Proceeds from a barbecue and a bake sale will be donated to the family, the park said.
