The Browns said that when Curtis went down the first time, he did not come back to the top. after trying to rescue Curtis, but to no avail, the Browns then notified the boy's father and they returned to the pool with some help and removed him from the water. Artificial respiration was administered but Curtis was already dead when his body was removed.

Curtis graduated from high school this year at Danville. Recently he had taken a selective service examination and had passed. He was a member of the Holy Church of Christ at Pleasant View and an active church worshipper.
