Swim tragedy claims second child victim
Seven-year-old boy dies in hospital a day after his brother drowned
By Joe FRIESEN and Eric VANDEN BUSSCHE, Tuesday, June 14, 2005, Page A15
With reports from Jen GERSON and Ken KILPATRICK in Hamilton
Fergus -- Already reeling from the drowning of their nine-year-old boy, a Toronto family was faced with a mounting tragedy last night as their seven-year-old son died in a Toronto hospital.
Calvin LE had been in critical care at the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto after a swimming accident that killed his brother Larry on Sunday.
The LE family spent the day shuttling between the Hospital for Sick Children and the McMaster Medical Centre in Hamilton, where a third son, eight-year-old Anthony, is being treated. Anthony's condition was upgraded to fair from serious yesterday.
The three children were involved in a horrifying incident at a beach in the Belwood Lake Conservation Area near Fergus on Sunday afternoon. The boys were swimming in the shallow water when someone noticed that Anthony was in trouble. He was pulled from the water and bystander Eddie RIVERA began to administer cardiopulmonary resuscitation. The boy's mother was apparently in such shock that she momentarily forgot about her two other sons who had also slipped under the water.
After a frantic 10-minute search, the two boys were pulled from the bottom by Mr. RIVERA of Kitchener, who had just finished reviving Anthony using cardiopulmonary resuscitation.
Mr. RIVERA, 28, told the Guelph Mercury that he dove deep into the water and scooped the two boys from the lake bottom, carrying them to the surface.
"It was just cold and dark," he said yesterday. "I knew I was going to run into a face. I guess I was more or less scared."
The boys were swimming at a former quarry site that has been transformed into a bathing area. The designated swimming zone, which is about one metre deep, is roped off with a floating line of white buoys. Beyond that line, the bottom drops off sharply, reaching a depth of five metres in the centre.
There are no lifeguards on duty, nor is there any supervision. Large signs near the beach warn parents that the beach patrol service, which operated until 1996, has been discontinued and that the safety of their children is their responsibility.
Yesterday, the Grand River Conservation Authority, which is responsible for the area, said it would examine safety procedures at all of its beaches in the wake of this incident and another recent drowning near Cambridge, Ontario
Dave SCHULTZ, spokesman for the conservation authority, said the review would likely examine issues such as signage and emergency procedures and might consider the question of staffing.
He said the beach patrol was discontinued partly for financial reasons and partly because it was thought to provide parents with a false sense of security. Members of the beach patrol were not trained lifeguards but watched swimmers.
Mr. SCHULTZ said budget cuts that were accelerated under the government of Mike Harris reduced the conservation authority's funding by several million dollars. A 1996 report to the authority's planning committee recommended cutting the beach patrol service because it was being phased out in other areas of the province and because it would save about $50,000 a year.
At Sick Kids hospital yesterday, more than half a dozen family members, many fighting tears, crowded into a corner of the waiting room of the critical-care unit.
In Hamilton, Le LINH, an uncle from Guelph, was with the boys' parents as they sat at Anthony's bedside.
He said their mother is very upset, but added that he didn't know much more.
"They don't talk too much, so I don't know exactly what happened. I just know they've [the children] been drowned in the water," he said.
He added that he thinks Anthony's condition is improving.
"He's a little bit awake and then they are going to take the tube out," he said. "Once in a while, he is moving and trying to wake up, but he can hear."
At the boys' elementary school, St. Jane Frances Catholic School on Jane Street in North York, principal Maria CIOPPA said the community was shocked and saddened by the news.
Larry's Grade 4 teacher, Maria LA REGINA, said he was a creative child with a mischievous smile. He was so small he would often be confused for a Grade 1 pupil and was known for his funny dances.
Mary Jo DEIGHAN, a spokeswoman for the Catholic School Board, said counselling services will be provided at the school for the next several days.
"This shows how important it is to look after children," Ms. DEIGHAN said. "Never let them out of your sight, not even for a second."

Tragic deaths shock teens
Students react to accidental deaths
By Rosie DIMANNO
Teenagers embrace and weep. Some are angry and direct that fury at outsiders, anyone beyond the terrible closed circle of their grief, their incomprehension.
What a wretched week it has been for students and faculty at James Cardinal McGuigan Catholic High School. They are in need of tenderness and solace.
Already stunned and emotionally raw over the arrest of 14 black male students charged with sexually assaulting or harassing a white female teenager over a prolonged period -- police swooping down to remove the youths on Monday, allegations of racism swirling since -- these students were left reeling anew yesterday morning upon learning that another one of their own had been found dead in a car only a few hours earlier, apparently the victim of accidental carbon monoxide poisoning.
The deceased is Anna ZARNOCH, a 17-year-old girl in Grade 12, reported missing by her parents the previous day. Her lifeless body, along with that of a 22-year-old male, was discovered shortly after 6 a.m. in a Cadillac parked inside the garage of a Lansdowne Ave. home, where the young man resided with his family.
Autopsies were to be performed today but police believe this awful tragedy was an accident. It appears the couple had fallen asleep in the back seat of the vehicle, with the engine running. The keys were still in the ignition but the car wasn't running because it was out of gas by the time the gruesome discovery was made.
Det. Sgt. Scott GILBERT, of 13 Division, told the Star last night that the young man's mother had seen the couple going into the garage the night before. "She went back out at 1 a.m. to check on them... but she didn't have any reason to think anything was wrong."
The mother then went to bed. It wasn't until a friend of her son came by early yesterday morning, to pick him up for work, that the mother realized he wasn't in his room, sources say. That's when the garage was checked again and the bodies found. Police were called, arriving at about 6: 20 a.m.
It was all too, too much for students at McGuigan, a high school on Finch Ave. just west of Keele St. Girls sobbed openly as they mulled around the school's front entrance while teenage boys puffed furiously on cigarettes and shouted "Go Away!" at reporters arriving on the scene.
"Leave us alone!" several pleaded. "This is a terrible thing that's happened. It's not news."
Alas, it is news, however unconnected the two occurrences -- the arrests and the accidental death -- may be. It is a hideous coincidence or confluence of events, with many wondering what in God's name this poor school has done to be so stricken by calamity, with all the attendant media attention.
"I just saw her yesterday," said Elizabeth OGUNBOYE, 14. "We walked together right along this street. The next thing I know she's dead. She was such a nice, a really nice, girl.
"First the arrests and then this."
It took considerable courage for any of the students to speak with reporters, as other youths shouted at them to shut up, knock it off. A few of the teenage boys and one extremely hostile girl took it upon themselves to steer others away from reporters, who were careful not to venture onto school property.
"Anger, sadness, shock," said Jessica OPOKU, 14, describing the atmosphere inside the school. "Oh my gosh, all the pain."
Added Nakisha BEALS: "A lot of people are crying in there. Dozens of people crying. It's so tragic. I feel so sorry for the family. They didn't even know where she was, they'd been looking for her."
And, from another student who would not give a name: "It's been hell on Earth."
Students learned about the death of the 17-year-old girl shortly after classes commenced. Faculty had been summoned to a staff meeting where the principal is said to have broken the news. Each teacher was given a sheet of paper that contained a picture of the deceased and the few details then known, with instructions to tell their students what had happened. It was decided, after consultation with Catholic school board authorities, that this would be more appropriate than announcing the death over the public address speaker.
A fleet of grief counsellors descended -- enough to take every class under wing. Later in the afternoon, with the school's flag lowered to half-mast, a prayer service was held for the dead girl.
"It is with great sadness that we confirm the untimely and accidental tragic death of one of our students," Mary Joe DEIGHEN, spokesperson for the school board, told reporters, reading at first from a prepared statement. "The staff and students of James Cardinal McGuigan Catholic School have suffered a great loss.
"This school has been under a lot of media attention during the past few days. I am asking and demanding that the press allow this community to grieve quietly. This has been requested by students and staff of this community.
"This accidental death is in no way, in no way, related or connected to the previous experience... we've been experiencing at this school."
DEIGHEN added: "They're grieving, they're hurt. We're hoping to start a healing process. But it's going to take a long time."
Out of respect for the deceased, the school cancelled an academic awards celebration -- 116 winners -- that had been scheduled for last night.
It was only one more small way in which the lives of these students have been overwhelmed by recent events. Unhappiness and volatile resentment were already thick on the ground following the arrest of the boys -- some of them athletes -- early in the week, after a 16-year-old girl told a teacher, then the police, that she had been sexually assaulted repeatedly since September 2004. Those assaults allegedly occurred both on and off school property.
The boys, who were handcuffed in front of their peers when removed from class or the corridors, spent the night in jail and all were granted bail on Tuesday. Since then, much of the student body appears to have closed rank around the male youths, with appallingly little sympathy expressed for the alleged victim.
In this hard attitude towards the girl, the students seem to be following a tone set by some parents of the accused. One mother, after bailing out her son, complained loudly that the girl had "been caught," suggesting she was a willing participant to whatever transpired, as some sort of 16-year-old predator.
Several parents, fiercely protective of their sons, have also lobbed accusations of racism and racial profiling by police, because all the accused are black and the alleged victim is white. Police adamantly deny this.
It seems not to have occurred to anyone that, if there were any racism at work in this alleged matter, it might be of the reverse variety -- a white girl allegedly victimized by a large number of black youth.
Four were charged with sexual assault and forcible confinement and 10 with criminal harassment. Two females have also been charged with making threats. Because of their age, none can be identified.
Parents are also livid over how the arrests were conducted, claiming they were not informed beforehand, with some further accusing the school of not protecting their kids, permitting them to be humiliated in front of other students. These issues were among the subjects of a tense meeting with school and police officials on Wednesday evening, attended by about 250 parents.
All the boys have been suspended from school and ordered to give up their cellphones and pagers, pending trial. They will be permitted to attend classes at any other school that might accept them.
The girl has not returned to class.
It doesn't take a scholar to see why.

It is with much sadness that the family announces the passing of William Charles KEYES, peacefully of old age, at Northumberland Hills Hospital on March 27. Loving and much loved husband and best friend of the late Margaret KEYES (née REEK.) Also predeceased by his eldest daughter, Dr. Mary E. KEYES. He will be greatly missed by his children Barb WINFIELD, Robert KEYES and his wife Susan, Peg KELLY and her husband Bruce, Carol DEIMLING and her husband Peter. Proud grandfather of Laura WINFIELD, Scott WINFIELD, Liz KELLY, Stephen KELLY, Jeff DEIMLING, and Brie DEIMLING, and great grandfather of Taya VANDYKE. Bill KEYES was born in Ridgetown, Ontario on August 7, 1912. He graduated from Ontario Agricultural College in Guelph in 1936 and worked with Toronto Elevators for nine years in its grain, seed and feed division. In 1945, he purchased a retail business in Port Hope, specializing in farm feeds and farm gasoline/home fuel oil delivery. Responding to his passion for farming developed during his early years growing up in rural Ontario, Bill also established a major hog grow operation in Port Hope and annually raised 200 acres of corn to support the enterprise. Bill was a member of Hope Lodge #114 since 1948, a member of Peterborough Valley Scottish Rite, and a charter member of Lakeshore Shrine Club in Port Hope. He was actively involved in and a major supporter of his community. He served as a trustee of the Port Hope and District Hospital Board for 28 years and as its chairman for 5 years. He also contributed to his community as a member and chairman of the Durham County School Board, the Port Hope Lions Club, and as an elder and long time member of the Port Hope United Church. Even in his late 80's, Bill continued to show his concern by riding a yellow school bus to the Referendum rally in Montreal to join others in demonstrating English Canadians' commitment to a Canada which included Quebec. In his latter years of his retirement, Bill lived with his daughter Barb in her home in Port Hope. He was surrounded by many who enthusiastically provided unconditional kindness and care to him. He exhibited to the end, his positive outlook and his quiet sense of humour, his patience and perseverance, and his deep love for his family and Friends. Bill was particularly proud of the accomplishments of his family. Visitation will be held from 6-8 pm. on Friday, April 1st at the Allison Funeral Home at 103 Mill Street North in Port Hope. A celebration of Bill's life will be held for family and Friends at the Port Hope United Church, 34 South Street, Port Hope at 2 pm on Saturday, April 2nd.

I am the gentle showers of rain, I am the fields of ripening grain. When you see the sunset fair, I am the scented evening air. I am the joy of a task well done. I am the glow of the setting sun. I am the song that will never end. I am the love of family and friend. I am the child who has come to rest. In the arms of the Father who knows her best. Do not stand at my grave and cry. I am not there I did not die.

GRAF, Sister Margaret
Unexpectedly at St. Joseph's Convent, Hamilton on April 25, 2005, Sister Margaret, in her 52nd year as a Sister of St. Joseph. Daughter of the late Alexander GRAF and Clara WALTER. Predeceased by her brother Joseph and her sister, Sister Barbara, C.S.J. Survived by her sisters, Mrs. Rita DEITNER (Leo), Mrs. Mary TAZIAR (Joseph), Mrs. Irene SERGI (Joseph), Sister Madeleine, C.S.J. and her brother Wilfred as well as many nieces and nephews and the members of her religious family, the Sisters of St. Joseph. The Sisters of St. Joseph will welcome family and Friends at St. Joseph's Convent, Hamilton on Friday, April 29 from 2: 00-4:00 and 7: 00-9:00 p.m. A Vigil Service will be held at 7:00 p.m. Mass of the Christian Burial will be celebrated on Saturday, April 30th at 10: 30 a.m. at St. Joseph's Convent, Hamilton. Interment at Holy Sepulchre Cemetery.
Sister Margaret entered the Sisters of St. Joseph in 1953. After completing her novitiate and qualifying studies, she graduated from St. Joseph's Hospital, School of Nursing, Hamilton in 1962. Wholehearted generosity and gentle care characterized her ministry in health care at St. Joseph's Hospital in Hamilton and St. Joseph's Hospital in Guelph until 1973 when multiple health problems dictated that she give up her cherished ministry of bedside care. From 1973-1980, Sister Margaret focused her talents and energies in service to the Congregation at the Motherhouse, in Cape Croker and in several volunteer ministries while addressing health issues and transitioning to the ministry of Pastoral Care Associate at St. Joseph's Hospital in Brantford. From 1980-1996, Sister Margaret's gifts of gentle compassionate empathy, endless patience and the ability to listen with the heart, offered comfort and consolation to the patients, residents and staff with whom she shared life and ministry in Brantford. Sister Margaret's interest, delight and skill in the ministry of Pastoral Care was nourished and supported by studies during a sabbatical year at the Credo Program in Spokane, Washington and further study in Clinical Pastoral Education in Toronto. In 1996, recurrent health issues, dictated that Sister Margaret retire to the Motherhouse. Never daunted by setbacks in health, Sister Margaret used this opportunity to develop her artistic self. An interest in “toile art” expanded from card making, to include complex projects and delicate artistry commissioned by those who came to know and appreciate Sister Margaret's artistic skill through Friendships forged in her volunteer teaching of this craft. Sister Margaret's quiet, gentle and prayerful presence will be a “gift forever” to those whose lives she touched!!

This poem was written for you Onion.
Always here, near not far, a constant star
No matter where you are.
Always following, look to the sky, Shiny
and bright that one starlight,
so smile as you know.
Always believe he is there, that blinding
spot so don't despair that he, his spirit
free, watching you and watching me.
Written by Sindy MUNROE
Love to you Ian for always and blessing you for a safe journey in your new life.
Love your wife Sindy and your son Bradley.
