I didn't personally know this boy, but I know people who knew him.

7-year-old boy drowned yesterday in a pool at a golf club while on a field trip. He was a very funny kid. His older brother always told the kid's jokes.

He was a very great soul who will be dearly missed by his family!

(I don't know his name, only his brother's which I will not give untilthey release the boy's name in the news)

Firstly after recently experiencing a death myself I understand that the last thing you probably want to hear is 'im sorry to hear that' But I'v said it now anyway.

A death of anyone, even if you simply knew them, but dident know anything elce about them. or if they go to the same school, or even if it is death's in the news that are in the area you live in. Whichever of these and more it will still affect you in someway.

You don't mention any of the resons why he dround himself, or indeed how you are feeling after it so I cannot help you specificly with these things now. If you would like me to then please reply here or you can PM me if you would prefere.

Im here for you
Take care

I don't know details, just that he drowned. The people at the golf club saw him at the bottom of the pool, and pulled him out to resuscitate him. That's all I know.


They don't know how he drowned, just that he did. As I said, I know his foster brother. He was such a sweet kid!

How do I feel? Not sure. Not broken up about it, but just angry because this kid was hilarious and sweet and his foster family loved him so much.

It angers me the paper says "his bio father was grief-stricken"...what about the people who brought him up?

Anyways, that's all I know.
