A seven-year old Jamaican boy was found drowned in the waters off Dunes beach in Sandbanks Provincial Park on Saturday.
The boy, Javaughn Black, was visiting Canada with his mother and sister, and was at the beach in South-eastern Ontario with family members.
According to media reports, he was initially reported missing but was later found in the water un-responsive and without evident vital signs. He was rushed to hospital but could not be revived.
A GoFundMe page has been set up by family friends to cover the expense of transporting Javuaghn’s body back to Jamaica.
The family had set a fund-raising target of (Canadian)$10,000 but according to media reports, that figure has already been surpassed.
