David Jackson, the 19 year-old St. Louis man that was pulled from the water at Fugitive Beach on Tuesday, August 8, has passed away.  He had been in intensive care at Mercy Hospital in St. Louis.  Though sedated and not fully breathing on his own, he was considered to be making improvements each day, according to family updates.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol said a former lifeguard and current employee at Fugitive Beach, dove in and pulled Jackson from the water several minutes once he went under.

Jackson is a 2016 graduate of St. Louis University High School and was a sophomore at Millikin University. The family has set up a GoFundMe page to help pay for medical expenses.
