The Central Texas father who lost both his legs attempting to save his daughter from a boating accident, has died.

Patrick Oliver, 37, died with his family by his side, according to the Temple Daily Telegram.

Oliver’s death may lead to additional charges against 44-year-old Jason Bernal, the man Temple police recently charged with criminal negligent homicide in the death of 4-year-old Katlyn Oliver at Lake Belton.

In late June, authorities said Bernal’s houseboat reversed over Katlyn Oliver. She died as a result of severe lacerations and drowning. Her father’s legs were cut off when they were caught in the boat propeller while he was trying to save Katlyn. 

Witnesses at the scene said they screamed at Bernal to stop reversing the boat, but the driver told police he didn’t see anyone in the water.
