Father and Son Whitewaters Drowning


Hi, my name is Marcos Leon, from San Bernardino,CA and I’m step-son of David Martinez-Garcia and an older brother of 7 yr. old David Martinez who both passed away in a tragic drowning incident in Whitewaters,CA..I myself didn’t attend the trip,and don’t know what exactly had happened,but I was informed that my little brother was swept away by the strong waters, and my step-father attempted to save him...he was then found dead by the authorities at the scene, while my little brother was taken to the nearest hospital and died later...This tragic incident will be the hardest obstacle to go through for and my family, and I ask for any donations that will be for the expenses for the funerals..I apoligize if the story sounds a bit rushed but this is being set up the day after...
ANYTHING will help and will be very much appreciated..Thank You.
