Tristan Demumbran was 6 years old and had autism. He lived in Hickman County, Tennessee. On June 5, 2014, Tristan's mother, Gidgett Denumbran was driving the family vehicle through high waters and the floodwaters forced her and five passengers to get out of the car. His mother grabbed Tristan by the hand in the high water but she was knocked unconscious by a branch and lost her grip on the boy. Gidgett Denumbran and the other passengers in the vehicle made it to safety. Tristan's body was found by search members in a drain pipe near the Beaverdam Creek on June 7, 2014.
Tribute to Tristan Demumbran: "He's an amazing little boy. He smiles all the time. He is always happy (Gidgett Demumbran, Mother)."
