Funeral services set for toddler who drowned in Ropesville
Funeral service has been set for a small child who died Friday night from drowning.
Cotton Lee Gregg, 2, from Ropesville was taken to University Medical Center with critical injuries after being submerged in water in an above-ground pool at his residence.
Captain Nolan Seaton with Hockley County Sheriff's Office said the family was having a party at their home and went inside for a few minutes. The young child wandered around the back yard and climbed the ladder to the pool.
After noticing the child was not around, the parents began to look for him. Seaton said that's when his father discovered him in the pool.
The child was brought in by Aerocare but died a short time later.
Visitation and a remembrance of young Cotton's life will be held Tuesday from 6-8 p.m. at Lake Ridge Chapel and Memorial Designers in Lubbock.
His funeral is set for Wednesday at 10 a.m. at the First Baptist Church in Ropesville.
Medical contributions can be also made to the First Baptist Church in Ropesville.
