LARIMER COUNTY, Colo. (CBS4)– The Larimer County coroner has identified the brothers who drowned in the Little Thompson River in Pinewood Springs on Sunday.
The coroner identified them as Daniel Foreman, 7, and his brother Paul Foreman, 10. Both were from Lyons.
The coroner also determined the cause of death for the brothers was drowning and was an accident.
The 911 call was made just before 12:30 p.m. Sunday and a massive amount of rescue crews responded, including those from the Larimer County Sheriff’s Office, Boulder Dive Team, Longmont Emergency Unit, Pinewood Fire Department, Big Elk Fire Department, Estes Park Fire Department, Estes Park Dive Team, and Estes Park Ambulance Service.
Unfortunately when the boys were found they could not be revived.
Residents say three seasons out of the year it’s possible to step over the river, but it’s currently running high and cold. It is believed the boys were playing by the river just beyond a members-only picnic park.
A GoFundMe page has been set up to help the family.
