7-Year-Old Girl Buried Alive While Playing in Sand Hole on Florida Beach

A little girl has died after being buried alive when a hole she and her brother were digging on a Florida beach collapsed on them Tuesday.

The seven-year-old girl was playing in the sand in Lauderdale-by-the-Sea with her nine-year-old brother when the five- or six-foot deep hole fell in, Pompano Beach Fire Rescue spokeswoman Sandra King told the South Florida Sun-Sentinel.

Fire and Rescue received an emergency call to respond to the 4400 block of El Mar Drive shortly after 3:00 p.m, King said. According to the rescue team, it is unclear whether adults were helping the children dig the hole.

Both siblings were inside the hole when it toppled in on itself, burying the boy up to his chest, while the girl was completely buried beneath him.

Video footage recorded by a witness and given to NBC Miami shows at least ten people gathered around the hole attempting to dig them out, though it’s unclear how long the children were trapped.
