Paramedics were unable to resuscitate the trapped child, and he was pronounced dead at a local hospital. A cause of death has not been released.

"It's just a tragedy," Wiles said.

Christian and Morrison are being held at the Greenup County Detention Center in Kentucky pending extradition. Wiles speculated the two could be extradited before the end of the week.

They face fines of up to $5,000 and three to 15 years in prison.
