Parents of drowning victim hope loss saves others
ST. PAUL PARK, Minn. -- Dylan Thorp loved being with friends and spending time outdoors.
A smiley 14-year-old, Dylan liked swimming, fishing and geocaching. He also liked to bring the outdoors inside.
“He loved to rescue animals,” recalled his mother, Danelle Johnson. “We’ve had so many critters we’ve had to take on.”
Dylan brought home small turtles, a snapping turtle and, after a fishing trip, even bait fish.
