An 11 years old boy has died

An 11-year-old boy has died after heroically saving his seven-year-old sister from drowning as they swam in a creek in Charlotte, North Carolina.
Randez Brown passed away on Thursday night after the incident at Davis Creek and his sister, Samiyah Brown, was listed in critical condition in hospital on Friday morning.
On Thursday evening, the siblings had been playing with several other children jumping from rock to rock at a culvert, which authorities said was as deep as 10 ft in some places.

Samiyah, a second grader, fell into the water and her big brother jumped in after her, friend Breanna Caldwell told the Charlotte Observer.
‘I’ve been down there,’ she said. ‘The water is sometimes rushing really fast out of the pipe. It’s muddy and easy to get stuck, especially if you go too far.’
