Young boys in lake transported to hospital

Two young Hood County boys, ages 7 and 8, who reportedly had been missing from their home since about 1 p.m. Sunday, were spotted in Lake Granbury shortly after 6 p.m. by an Oak Trail Shores subdivision resident who lives on Pecan Valley Court before being carried by first responders and a BRA lake ranger to two waiting ambulances and then transported from an address on nearby Lakeshore Drive to a hospital, according to officials and witnesses at the scene. Emergency scanner traffic indicated that the boys were wrapped in blankets because they may have had hypothermia, but an official as well as a witness said they were not in a life-threatening situation. The man who called 911 said the boys were trying to avoid being seen, and appeared to have been in water that was only about chin deep.
