An Edgewood man has died after heroically saving the life of a 5-year-old girl earlier this month.

According to Texas Parks and Wildlife, 26-year-old Travis Williamson was swimming with a group of people June 9 at Mill Creek Reservoir in Canton, when the girl began to struggle in the water. While attempting to save the girl Williamson drowned himself. A bystander swam the girl to safety. Boaters arrived to Williamson minutes later and he was transported to Trinity Mother Frances Tyler. Williamson died Saturday.

The girl was taken to the hospital but suffered no injuries.
