The Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries tells media outlets that the boys were on an inner tube being pulled by a boat on Butterworth Pond. When the boat made a turn, the inner tube hit a tree.

Ten-year-old Grayson Payne Austin was pronounced dead at a hospital in Richmond. A 9-year-old boy was in critical condition. His name hasn't been released.
