A four-year-old boy who was rescued and then hospitalized after being underwater at the Pocket Wilderness at Falling Water last Sunday has died.
William Smith had gone under the water while on a hiking expedition with his family.
His father, Tony Smith, wrote Saturday afternoon on his Facebook page:
"I do not know how to begin this post. William passed away this afternoon. It has been and will continue to be an incredible journey. The miracle we received is not what we wanted. But the power of your prayers resonate still. Will received the ultimate healing today and many others including myself stand in awe at the power if prayer surrounding thus incredible life. He has graciously offered up his life and in the processes 8 people have the potential for new life. Will is an organ donor and for this who know him, know that he was really good at sharing. God bless you all. This page will continue in the hopes of sharing and building on the love he would want us all to share."
