Walter Gonzalez

SIMI VALLEY, Calif. -

A Simi Valley teen is being remembered for his heroics during a dangerous dip in the Merced River.

On Sunday Walter Gonzalez tried to help his parents get out of the water safely and ended up getting pulled underwater in an area called Devils Elbow.

The 17-year-old was a junior at Royal High School in Simi Valley.

His classmates organized a vigil at the school Wednesday night.
