Rescue operation for 8 year old lost in sand

Rescue operation underway after young boy falls into 8ft sand hole

This is local-ish, but they broke in for an update then went back to regular programming. Has anyone seen it anywhere else?  Thought WGN might have it, but they're not either.

    I don't know why, but the way it's being covered is irritating me.  It just seems like this should be more important than summer reruns, ya know?

  • I was just at Mount Baldy in May. I saw a lot of the areas were fenced off and the only way to get to the lake was the path and stairs. Scary though because I remember how loose the sand was at that particular place.

  • Link has been updated again to say he "has a chance of survival", still not a lot of detail. Everyone we know is there at some point over the summer each year, so it's terrifying to think it could've been someone we know.
