Child who was crushed by falling house passes away

Just two weeks ago, we reported the good news that the Belize Bank and Hand in Hand Ministries had assisted the Cordova family in Orange Walk, whose house collapsed on July twenty-fifth. Ten year old Brithon Cordova, who was playing under the house when it fell on him. Well tonight, there is sad news as Brithon passed away early this morning. The accident caused severe brain damage, leaving Brithon paralyzed and unable to eat or speak. His mother, Norma Cordova, devoted herself to providing twenty-four hour care and said she would not give up on her son. But it appears; he had suffered enough and went quietly at around five-thirty this morning. His family says that while it’s not easy to let him go, they can find comfort in the fact that his pain is over.

    My deepest sympathy to his family. Though there’s no words to erase such pain, May you all find comfort in close families and friends in this time of sorrow. Though death leaves a heartache no one can heal, love leaves many memories no one can steal. Heartfelt wishes to the entire family of Brithon. May he rest peacefully!
