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."

With sadness, we announce the passing of David BOWLES on Friday, December 9, 2005, aged 69. Beloved husband of Shirley. Devoted son of Elizabeth (and the late William R. BOWLES) and loving brother of William (Lynne). David leaves behind to celebrate his life his children: Karen (Bill) HAMMOND, Lori (Paul) RIVEST, Shirley (Michael DARBY;) and cherished grandchildren Derek, Paul Michael, John, Martha and Michael.
David was president of Carton Trade Services for 20 years, and a respected business leader in the paper box industry. In his youth, he was a fierce defenseman for the Junior A Barrie Flyers. He continued to play hockey for many years afterward, enjoying the camaraderie of his teammates in old-timers' hockey leagues. He was a man of great strength, pride and generosity. He was happiest sharing a laugh with his family and Friends, especially when playing jokes on them. His sense of humour had become legendary in his neighbourhood.
Although David had wished to be floated down the Don River in a cardboard box wrapped in blazing Christmas lights, instead the family has arranged for visitation at Ogden Funeral Home, 4164 Sheppard Ave. East, Agincourt, (416) 293-5211 on Monday from 7-9 and Tuesday 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. Funeral will be held in the Ogden Chapel on Wednesday at 2 p.m.
The family would like to convey their deepest gratitude to Dr. SHOGILEV, Durham Access-to-Care, and especially Lara Lemieux for their care and kindness throughout David's long illness.
