Boy Dies in Rapid Creek
On Saturday afternoon Trevor Whitehead and his step-brother went out to play by the Rapid Creek in Rapid City, SD. Trevor's step-brother left for a few minutes and when he got back Trevor was gone. Around 3:30 the step-brother found an adult and called into 9-1-1 right away. On Sunday Rapid City crews found the 10-year-old's body. Around 6 or 7 Sunday morning the water dropped two feet making it easier for crews to find Whithead's body. The Thursday before the city of Rapid City warned parents to watch their kids because of the high waters at the creek due to heavy rains. Whitehead was found 50 feet away from where he was seen playing. Parents please watch your children carefully. All kid want to play in water, so just keep an eye on them.
