A heartbreaking accident this morning when a 10-year-old boy was fatally struck by a log due to Tropical Storm Cindy's storm surge.
The boy, identified a Nolan McCabe, was on vacation from Missouri with his family. He'd walked out of the condo in which they were staying. His father describes a huge wave coming in toward the boy and a log that was between him and the shore. The storm surge lifted the log "into and over his son," according to a Baldwin County Sheriff's police report.
The accident happened near Gulf Shores, near Ponce de Leon Court and Fort Morgan Road.
