Visitation Today For Child Who Died On Christmas Day

Posted: Updated:

MARTIN COUNTY, Ky. (LEX 18)  - Visitation services will be held today for a young boy pulled from a river in Martin County on Christmas Day.

The body of 7-year-old Paul Bowen was found a mile from where he had gone into the Tug Fork of the Big Sandy River. Family says he was playing on the banks and fell in around noon.

An hour later, his body was pulled out of the water.

“They found the kid's hat. The body was found about a mile from the site. They tried to revive him but I think it'd been too long,” Kermit Fire Department Chief William Reece told East Kentucky Broadcasting.

All attempts to resuscitate him were unsuccessful. Crews initially identified him as being 6-years-old but Paul was 7-years-old.

Visitation will be from 11 a.m. until 9 p.mm on Thursday with services at 7 p.m. at the Mullins Family Funeral Home. Funeral services will be conducted on Friday, December 29 at Noon at the same location.
