Nine-year-old dies in drowning accident
Nine-year-old Michael Anthony Nunnally Jr. of Holly Springs drowned Thursday afternoon while attempting to save the life of his 6-year-old cousin, according to coroner James Richard Anderson.
The accident occurred around 5 p.m. June 24 while four children and two adults were fishing under a bridge on Beale Road at Pigeon Roost Creek, he said.
One of the adults went into the water and saved the 6-year-old but Nunnally slipped away in currents. His body was found near where he went in – in 10 to 12 feet of water – by divers with the Holly Springs Fire Department around 6:45 p.m., Anderson said.
“He was a victim, but he was also a hero in trying to save his cousin and in that act he lost his own life,” said Maj. David Cook, sheriff’s deputy who worked the tragedy.
