PANAMA CITY BEACH, Fla. (AP) - Law enforcement officials in Florida say an Oklahoma teenager has died two days after the walls of a hole he dug in the sand collapsed on him.

The Bay County Sheriff’s Office reports on social media that 17-year-old Travor Brown died at Panama City hospital Friday.

The News Herald (https://bit.ly/1ZDDfPA ) reports that Brown was visiting the area with friends. On Wednesday, beachgoers told Bay County Sheriff’s deputies they’d seen a couple of teens digging in a sand bank at St. Andrews State Park. Later, they noticed a teen’s feet sticking out of the sand and started digging him out.
