Jamaica: Boy Perishes Saving Brother In Double Drowning

A 15-year-old boy reportedly perished trying to save his 17-year-old brother on Sunday, ruining what was planned to be a joyous family reunion for a matriarch celebrating her 80th birthday.

The double-drowning tragedy happened in the murky waters of the Rio Cobre after the boys and others went on a frolic after the event.

The grief at the family’s home on Camille Way in Eltham Park, St Catherine, was palpable late Sunday afternoon, with the boys’ mother and grandmother inconsolable.
