PANAMA CITY BEACH, Fla. (WDTN) – The family of the 3-year-old boy who died in Panama City Beach, Fla. after falling nine stories from a condominium has started a GoFundMe to raise money for funeral arrangements.
Hunter Cole Wilcox fell nine stories from the Marisol Condiminium Complex while on vacation with his family on Saturday, according to the GoFundMe page.
