Ronda Gibson wanted something more to come from the tragic death of Wyatt Dale Terasas. Three-year-old Wyatt lost his life over the July 4 weekend in a drowning accident at Sandy Beach. Robert Box, Brazos River Authority chief lake ranger, said they received a dispatch to Sandy Beach in response to a 9-1-1 call. "They had been out in the water playing," Box related. Wyatt was at Sandy Beach with his father, Aaron Terasas, and his 2-year-old sister. Box said the father and a friend were at the shoreline watching the boy. "They turned their backs to the water and when they turned back around, he was gone," the chief lake ranger said. Gibson, along with Wyatt's family, initiated a program collecting donations and establishing a non-profit organization, Jackets Float Kids Don't. Starting Saturday, the Terasas family and the organization will be handing out loaner life jackets for children at Sandy Beach from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. The organization will also have volunteers at North D&D and Bug Beach during the same hours. Sunday, life jackets will be available at those three locations from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Wyatt's family will have a balloon release and prayer at 10 a.m. Saturday at Sandy Beach in remembrance of him.
