Boy Rescued From Pampa Lake Remains in Hospital

A three-year-old boy is in the hospital after apparently spending more than half an hour in frigid water.

It happened Friday around six in the evening in Pampa's Recreation Park.

Pampa Police say three year old Brian Iburra was at a cookout with his family when he and another child, a two year old boy, wandered into the water.

A sister saw the children and tried to get help.

Family members rescued the two year old but Iburra floated farther into the lake.

After several attempts by EMS and the Pampa Fire Department, officials were able to get him out of the 40 degree water and send him to Northwest Texas Hospital.
