Three Floridians and a dog are found dead in the Texas cistern

Three Florida hunters, accompanied by their dog, were found dead in an underground cistern located in a cornfield in northern Bastrop County, Texas.

Upon receiving reports of distress Wednesday morning, the Bastrop County Sheriff’s Office discovered the bodies of Delvys Garcia, 37, Denise Martinez, 26, and Noel Vigil-Benitez, 45, trapped inside the cistern . Initial information points to a series of tragic events. It seems that during their hunting trip, one of the dogs accidentally fell into the cistern. In an attempt to save the dog, one of the hunters may have ended up inside. This apparently caused the other two to enter the cistern on a rescue mission.

In addition to the narrative, the sheriff’s office mentioned a fourth member of the hunting party, who upon realizing the dire situation, rushed to his truck to call for emergency help.

Unfortunately, the water level inside the cistern was significantly below its small opening at ground level, making escape virtually impossible. This deadly trap claimed the lives of the three hunters and their dog.

The sheriff’s office highlighted the tragic outcome. They also confirmed that a thorough investigation into the circumstances leading to the incident and an autopsy has been launched.
