Boy Buried Alive at NJ Beach Dies

Boy Buried Alive at NJ Beach Dies
A 16-year-old Pennsylvania boy died at a Camden hospital Wednesday, two days after being buried in sand when a beach tunnel he was digging collapsed.

Daniel Correll, 16, of Oley, Pa., died about 12:30 p.m. at Cooper Hospital-University Medical Center in Camden, spokeswoman Sharon Clark said. She would not give details.

During a family outing Monday on the beach in Loveladies, Correll and a cousin were digging holes up to 6 feet deep on the beach and connecting them with a tunnel when the sand suddenly gave way.

"The next thing I know, one of them is yelling that the other one was buried alive and that we should call 911," said Dennis Klein of Maple Shade, who was nearby at a beachfront pool. "At first I thought he was playing a prank. But then, from the look on his face, I knew it was real," Klein told the Philadelphia Inquirer.

It took rescue workers about 20 minutes to pull the boy out. He was unconscious and had no heartbeat when he was finally freed.
