Airdrie drowning boy funeral fund
Two boys were playing by the canal in Airdrie on Family day when the ice broke and the two boys fell in.
A neighbor called 911, Firefighters pulled the boys from the freezing water and they were rushed to hospital, but the younger boy died.
His 10-year-old brother suffered hypothermia and was in serious condition, but he is going to be okay.
"The area where this happened is a residential area and they live in the area so it wasn't as if the boys had strayed far from home by any stretch," said RCMP Cpl. Curtis Peters.
"It's a tragedy for the family and for the community, the loss of a child in a situation like this is just devastating."
Please keep this family in your thoughts and prayers.
Even a little donation will help.
