BOWIE COUNTY, Texas (KTAL/KSHV) – Redwater Independent School District officials confirmed the death of one of their students, a seventh-grade child, and the hospitalization of their ninth-grade sibling on Wednesday due to an at-home accident.

“Last night, one of our families suffered a terrible tragedy in their home; and as a result, their seventh-grade child died and the ninth-grade sibling is currently hospitalized,” the school said in a statement Wednesday.

According to the Bowie County Sheriff’s Office, DPS troopers arrived at the home to find a 16-year-old girl unresponsive on the porch as well as a 13-year-old boy unresponsive in the home.

Officers attempted to resuscitate the teens with CPR but were unable to save the 13-year-old boy.

The girl was taken to Wadley Hospital and has been transferred to Children’s Hospital in Little Rock.

Police say the home was without electricity and was being heated with a gas-powered generator. There are no indications of foul play and it is suspected that carbon monoxide poisoning is the cause of this tragedy.

Redwater ISD sent a letter to families referencing the loss of the student as well as resources that families can utilize in order to help talk with their students and help them process what they are feeling.

The school says counselors are available at the JH campus for students and teachers and will remain available any time this week.
