    Arizona Boy Dies In Bodega Bay Sand Cave Collapse

    BODEGA BAY -- A 10-year-old boy from Arizona, visiting the Bay Area with his family, has been killed when a cave he and his brother were digging at a beach near Bodega Bay collapsed and buried him six feet deep in sand.

    The unnamed boy and his brother were apparently tunneling into the side of a sand dune situated under a 40-foot tree at Salmon Creek Beach, according to Bodega Bay Battalion Chief Mike Elson.

    While they were digging, the large tree fell over, causing the tunnel to collapse, Elson said.

    Back in the summer there was a special report about not digging in the sand and how it could cause deaths....very sad news.
