Winnsboro Boy Drowns

A 22 month old boy from Winnsboro died on Wednesday. The Wood County Sheriff's Department says the boy was playing with his four-year-old step brother last week, when they wandered off into the backyard. The boy's mother noticed they were missing and when she went outside she found the boy in a pond. The boy was unconscious and flown to Children's Hospital in Dallas. The sheriff's department says Child Protective Services is investigating, which is normal procedure when a child dies.
