8-year-old Limestone County boy dies

LIMESTONE COUNTY, AL (WAFF) - The 8-year-old boy from Limestone County passed away at Huntsville Hospital on Friday.

Limestone Chapel released the obituary for Son Thai Phan Saturday.

On Wednesday, the Limestone County Sheriff's Office reported that a couple saw the 8-year-old floating in the water. He was wearing a mask and snorkel.

"The husband initially told his wife, a hospital ER nurse, that the boy looked like he was playing the 'dead mans game' floating without moving, but when the top of the snorkel went under they knew something was wrong," the sheriff's office posted on Facebook.

The couple pulled Son from the pool while others on scene called 911. They were not related to the child.

The nurse began CPR and continued the process until being relieved by responding EMTs.
