What to Know

  • An Oklahoma teenager remains in critical condition after the walls of a hole he dug in the sand collapsed on him in Florida.

Law enforcement officials in Florida say a teenager remains in critical condition after the walls of a hole he dug in the sand collapsed on him.

Officials say the mother of 17-year-old Trevor Brown was traveling Thursday from their home in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma, to Panama City Beach. The teen remained in critical condition at a hospital after being trapped under the sand on Wednesday afternoon.

The Panama City News Herald reports 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. Later they noticed a teen's feet sticking out of the sand and started digging him out.
