The family of Raul Hernandez is still struggling to cope in the wake of his death last August. Hernandez, 27, jumped into a pool to rescue his younger brother and mother who were both being electrocuted after the pool light snapped on. His mother, Maria Isabel Duran, and his youngest brother, David Duran, then 11, survived, but Hernandez never regained consciousness. He died days later.
