ONE DIES IN SPLENDORA SWIMMING ACCIDENT

About 3:30 pm this afternoon a 23-year old Kevin Burgess of Cleveland was with several other young adults at a swimming hole at the end of Midline Road in Splendora.
The approximately one-acre lake has a zip-cable across it attached to trees at both ends. Burgess climbed the tree to get the handles for the cable which was approximately 30 feet off the ground. As he started out to the other side the cable hung jarring him loose. Burgess fell to the ground almost head first resulting in a severe head injury.
Another person there was then flagged down and after loading Burgess in the Chevrolet Suburban started for the hospital.
When they got to the intersection of US 59 at Fostoria EMS was called.
EMS arrived on the scene and at 4:01 p.m. pronounced him deceased.
Judge Jame Metts was called to the scene and ordered an autopsy at the Southeast Forensic Center in Conroe.
