PASS CHRISTIAN, Miss. (AP) - Authorities say an 8-year-old New Orleans area boy riding on a tube has died in a boating accident on the Mississippi coast's Wolf River.

Department of Marine Resources spokeswoman Melissa Scallan told The Associated Press that the boy and another sibling were on the tube being pulled Monday afternoon by a boat piloted by the boy's father. When the boat went around a bend, she says, the tube hit a tree and witnesses reported that the boy went under the water. She says the second child wasn't hurt.

Scallan says the injured child, who was wearing a life jacket, was later pronounced dead at a Gulfport hospital where he was taken. Scallan declined to identify those involved by name or whether the other child was a boy or girl.

Terrible deal.

John Jay 1st SC Chief Justice, Federalist Papers No. 2... I often note with equal pleasure that God gave this one connected country to one united people – a people descended from the same language, professing the same religion, attached to the same principles of government, very similar in manners and customs

SOCIALISM is a philosophy of FAILURE, the creed of IGNORANCE, the gospel of ENVY, ....... its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of MISERY. W. Churchhill
