According to the National Park Service (NPS), at around 2 p.m. on Saturday, May 6, rangers responded to a 911 call reporting a teen trapped in a hole. Family and friends looking for the teen found him buried under several feet of sand, it is believed that this was caused by parts of a nearby sand dune to collapse into the hole.

Rangers worked with Dare County EMS and Hatteras Island Ocean Rescue staff to extract the teen while performing CPR, but the resuscitation efforts were not successful, according to NPS.

This incident is under investigation.
