George hospital and then to Primary Children’s Hospital in Salt Lake City. He died there Sunday after not regaining brain activity, the Utah Division of State Parks Department said.The boy, Ian Spendlove, was from Santa Clara, a small town about 65 miles (105 kilometers) from Coral Pink Sand Dunes State Park, officials said Monday.Campers and off-road drivers flock to the park near the Utah-Arizona border for the vibrant hue of its warm, pink sand, which is made out of eroding Navajo sandstone.Devan Chavez, a spokesman for the parks agency, said he wasn’t aware of any similar incidents at Coral Pink Sand Dunes, but in 2012, another teen died after being trapped under a collapsed sand dune at Snow Canyon State Park, about 50 miles (80 kilometers) northwest.Saturday's dune collapse remains under investigation.

Parents under investigation after letting 6-year-old son run full marathon Officials at the Iglesia Apostoles y Profetas church, where Proctor died, told the San Jose Mercury News that they performed a ceremony on the toddler to “liberate her of her evil spirits,” and that her death was “the will of God,” and not related to the exorcism.Court documents obtained by KRON found that the family “believed the child was possessed by a demon and were at the church praying for her,” according to deputy district attorney Rebekah Wise.Authorities say that Hernandez withheld food from her daughter and squeezed her neck.
