Chad Eugene Gragg died attempting to save Aaron Wayne Gragg and Stephen Douglas Gragg from drowning, Buckner, Missouri, February 4, 1988. When Aaron, 11, fell through the ice on a small pond and called for help, his brother, Stephen, 8, ran onto the ice for him, but he slid into the open water and submerged. Their brother, Chad, 12, student, immediately went onto the ice for the boys. Nearing them, he too broke through. Firemen arrived shortly and pulled the boys from the pond, but none of them could be revived.
