2 year old drowns in P.G.

A family in the south of the country is mourning the loss of a loved one. A two year old drowned in Punta Gorda on Tuesday, when the child went swimming with family members in the sea near Texaco Gas Station. He was along with his aunt, a fourteen-year-old student and several other children.  It is not known how he drowned, but the child was discovered near a bus shed in the vicinity of the gas station and rushed to the hospital, but passed away before he got there.  Police are investigating the tragic loss.
