Chambers County Sheriff's Office
News Release
Monday, June 29, 2015

Sheriff Brian C. Hawthorne reports that on 28, June 2015 that Chambers County Sheriff’s Deputies were called to Cedar Hill Park located at Lake Charlotte off FM 563 and Lake Charlotte Road just north of I-10 to assist Texas Parks and Wildlife in an alligator attack of a 13 year old boy and his father. 

The 13 year old, Kaleb Hurley was swimming near the bank when witnesses stated that an alligator came up and bit the young man’s arm taking him under water. The father of the boy, 42 year old James Hurley ran into the water and was able to save his son but in the process the alligator attacked him biting him on the leg. James Hurley was able to kick the alligator until it released him. Both were in serious but stable condition when flown by Life Flight to Herman Hospital.

 Sheriff Hawthorne wants to remind citizens that this is the nesting period for alligators and with the recent flood waters the alligators have been displaced. This incident is being handled by the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department.
