We heard on the news this afternoon that a 15 year old boy from one of our high schools went into a local lake and was under for 30 minutes, possibly more. They had to call in a dive team to locate him, They pulled him out and performed CPR and eventually got a heartbeat.

The boy went to my school and is a fabulous kid - hard working, smart, good musician and ran like he had wings on his feet. His parents emigrated from Africa, and he had a very bright future.

I have not heard any updates since the news clip, but it doesn't look good.

Please pray for Tope (Toe'-pay) and his family.

Such sad news Cara.  What a tough real life experience to have to go through at such a young age.  Extra vibes being sent to your son tonight.

I'm so very sorry to hear this. Prayers for his family, friends, schoolmates, and community. It's always sad to lose a child.

I've been thinking about this all morning. It makes my heart hurt. My senior year of high school we had a similar accident. A boy in the grade ahead of me was in his Freshman year of college. Star football player and all around nice guy. Mother's Day weekend he went for a swim on campus with some of his college buddies. Drove in and never came back up.
