8 year old drowns in the south

Adrian Lopez

The family of a young child in Dangriga Town is tonight mourning his death, following an unfortunate incident over the weekend in which he drowned.  Eight year old Adrian Lopez, a student of Sacred Heart Primary School, was reportedly swimming with friends in the North Stann Creek River when he went under.  His parents, police officers Corporal Matthew and Sergeant Lynette Lopez, became alarmed when he did not return home sometime later.  They set out to look for him and were informed of the incident.  Adrian’s body was retrieved from the river shortly before ten o’clock on Sunday night.  His body was transported to the Southern Regional Hospital where he was pronounced dead on arrival.  The body, News Five understands, awaits the result of a post mortem examination.
