Central States News: Two Youths Drown After Sledding Accident

It happened Friday afternoon near the small community of Southwest City MO- near the state borders with Arkansas and Oklahoma.

According to The JOPLIN GLOBE- 13-year-old Joseph Cody and his 9-year-old sister Grace were out sledding when they steered onto the ice of a uncompletely- frozen pond.

Both youths and their sleds broke through the ice and they plunged into the icy pond water that was as deep as 25-feet.

Rescuers found Joseph in about an hour- but they couldn't revive him.

Grace's body wasn't located until later that evening.

CSW offers our condolences to the Cody family and friends on this tragic loss.
