PANAMA CITY BEACH, Fla. (AP) - Law enforcement officials in Florida say a teenager remains in critical condition after the walls of a hole he dug in the sand collapsed on him.

Officials say the mother of 17-year-old Trevor Brown was traveling Thursday from their home in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma, to Panama City Beach. The teen remained in critical condition at a hospital after being trapped under the sand on Wednesday afternoon.

The News Herald (http://bit.ly/1ZDDfPA ) reports Brown was visiting the area with friends. On Wednesday, beachgoers told Bay County Sheriff's deputies they'd seen a couple of teens digging in a sand bank. Later they noticed a teen's feet sticking out of the sand and started digging him out.
