Tragic Incident in Texas Cornfield Claims Lives of Three Hunters and a Dog

Three hunters from Florida and their dog were tragically found dead after becoming trapped in an underground cistern in a Texas cornfield, according to the Bastrop County Sheriff’s Office. The incident occurred when Delvys Garcia, 37, Denise Martinez, 26, and Noel Vigil-Benitez, 45, were reported to be trapped in the hole.

Upon arrival, authorities discovered no signs of life and initial reports indicated that the hunting party, consisting of three males and one female, had ended up on foot in the cornfield after their dog fell into the cistern. It is believed that one of the individuals initially entered the cistern to try and rescue the dog, and the other two subsequently entered in an effort to save them.

A fourth member of the party had to go to their truck to seek assistance and call 911. Unfortunately, the water level inside the cistern was below the small opening, making escape impossible. As a result, two males and one female lost their lives, along with the dog.

The Bastrop County Sheriff’s Office has launched an investigation to confirm the initial details of the incident, and an autopsy has been ordered. The exact circumstances surrounding the tragedy remain under investigation.

This tragic incident serves as a somber reminder of the dangers that can arise during outdoor activities. It is important to prioritize safety and remain vigilant when engaging in such endeavors, taking precautions to prevent accidents and ensure personal well-being.
