Incident at 11000 Kinghurst
May 28, 2005 -- Identities of
two boys found at the bottom of an apartment complex swimming
pool about 1:35 p.m. on Friday have been released.
The deceased boy was identified as McClain Rockson,
6. His older brother, Richard Rockson, 8, remained in the intensive
care unit at Memorial Hermann Children's Hospital.
HPD Homicide Division Sergeant D.A. Ferguson
and Officer B.C. McDaniel reported:
The mother of the two boys allowed them to wade
in the water on the steps of the apartment complex swimming pool.
The mother said she went back to check on the boys anywhere between
30 and 90 minutes later. The mother said she then saw the boys
at the bottom of the pool. She screamed for help and some teens
in the area jumped into the pool and pulled the boys out.
The teens, a responding HPD police officer, and
HFD paramedics administered CPR on the boys. However, McClain
was pronounced dead at Memorial Hermann Southwest Hospital.
