Icy pond claims boy
The 11-year-old died in hospital after trying to pull his pal out.
By Alan CAIRNS, Sun Media, Mon., December 11, 2006
Toronto -- A heroic 11-year-old boy who bravely tried to pull a teenage pal from the icy waters of a Scarborough subdivision drainage pond died last night in hospital.
Brunthan MURALEDARAN, 11, a Grade 6 student at Thomas L. Wells public school, had bravely walked onto the pond's thin ice after the ice had broken under the weight of his 15-year-old pal Kishoban ALAKESWARAN.
Brunthan was on his knees and held Kishoban's hand in his own when the ice broke again.
Both boys slipped under the water as their Friends and four Toronto cops crashed through the ice and had to swim for their own lives after they and a civilian had made a gallant attempt to save them.
Kishoban and Brunthan were located beneath the murky waters of the pond near Morningside Drive and Finch Avenue later by firefighters using life jackets and inflatable dinghies.
Some onlookers estimate as much as 45 minutes passed before the younger boy was found.
The stricken boys were rushed to Sick Kids' hospital by ambulance and helicopter.
Brunthan was pronounced dead last night. Kishoban is in critical condition.
The four cops who fell through the ice were taken to hospital and treated for hypothermia.
An ambulance official was treated for hypothermia at the scene.
Hundreds of residents watched the 3 p.m. tragedy unfold in the sun-bathed basin of the Morningside and Finch Avenue pond from the arena-like vantage points of its bluff-like sides, townhouse balconies and the raised Canadian Pacific rail tracks to the south.
Among those who watched the boys sink under the water was Kishoban's younger brother, Vigithan, 13.
The brothers and three Friends where on their way to play soccer at a nearby field just before tragedy struck.
Kishoban's brother, Vigithan, told reporters outside the family's semi-detached home last night that the boys were throwing rocks on the ice-covered south end of the pond before Kishoban began walking out from the shore.
They had been throwing big rocks. And the ice did not break. Kishoban thought it was safe.
"He was not, like, scared of really anything… he's really fearless," Vigithan said of his older brother. "Even if he went in there, he thought it wasn't that deep and he could swim out easily," Vigithan said.
Their cousin, Sinthiyan BALASULRAMANIAM, 14, said everyone begged Kishoban not to go out on the ice.
"We told him not to… he said: 'Don't worry, nothing will happen,' " Sinthiyan said.
Then the ice began cracking around Kishoban.
As Kishoban turned around to come back to the shore, the ice broke beneath him and he fell into the icy water.
His brother, Vigithan, said it was "just a tragedy… it was just like unexpected… he was just like, walking, and all of a sudden he fell.
"First he was joking. He thought he could come out… but then he started getting serious. He started crying. His face started turning red and stuff," Sinthiyan said.
"When he first fell in, I said: 'Can I go call my uncle', and he said: 'No, I'm all right. And he was laughing. And I thought he was okay. He was going to come… and suddenly he started sinking," Sinthiyan said.
Brunthan then stepped out on the ice and walked towards the struggling teen, scolding him as went down on his knees and held out a hand.
"We told Brunthan not to go out… we can just go and call our uncles. Brunthan didn't listen to us… when he went in, he was like: 'Why did you come in here, didn't I tell you not to come in here.' He started yelling at Kishoban."
As the two pals clasped hands, more ice broke away and they were both in the water.
Sinthiyan ran off to get help. A woman gave him her cell phone and he called 911.
Out of nowhere, a truck sped to the scene and a man with a rope appeared.
"He handed me the rope, he wanted me to go out myself. I felt if I go out, I'll be a victim too," Vigithan said.
The man told him he was too heavy and he would break the ice and one of the boys would have to go.
Vigithan said he plucked up enough courage to walk out on the ice and try to throw the rope to Brunthan.
He walked out to about halfway between the shore and where his friend was struggling.
"My brother was under… I couldn't see him," Vigithan said.
"Brunthan was gasping for breath. (The rope) was right there beside him, like an inch away. He was trying to get on top of the ice and have some deep breaths… he wasn't thinking about the rope."

Second boy who fell in pond dies
By Unnati GANDHI, Page A7
Toronto -- A 15-year-old boy who fell through a sheet of thin ice into a Scarborough pond with a friend last week died yesterday.
Kishoban ALAKESWARAN spent a week in critical condition at Toronto's Hospital for Sick Children before he was removed from life support yesterday.
"Although the doctor said there was no hope of him surviving his oxygen levels weren't going very well -- we all had hope, and his mom had faith that God would bring her son home," said Kishoban's cousin, Nithja VARATHARAJAN, 18, last night.
Kishoban had been on his way to a soccer game with Friends when they came across the pond on the unusually warm winter's day. The Friends tested the strength of the ice by throwing increasingly larger rocks onto its surface. Even though some went through, Kishoban was adamant to try to walk across, Friends said.
When he crashed through the ice, his 11-year-old friend, Birunthan NADARAJAH, tried to rescue him but the ice gave way and Birunthan died. Kishoban's family has said they will be nominating Birunthan for a bravery medal.
The Grade 10 Woburn Collegiate Institute student was known for his exceptionally high marks in school, especially in math and computers.
"His intelligence really made the family proud," Ms. VARATHARAJAN said. His body can be viewed on Wednesday from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Ogden Funeral Home at 4164 Sheppard Avenue East. Cremation will be held on Thursday.

Pond claims second boy
By Henry STANCU, Meghan WATERS, Staff Reporters
A 15-year-old boy who fell through pond ice near his northeast Toronto home with a friend eight days ago has died in hospital without ever regaining consciousness.
Kishoban ALAKESWARAN was throwing stones on a frozen pond near Morningside Ave. and Finch Ave. E. with his 11-year-old friend Brunthan NADARAJAH when he went through the thin ice.
Brunthan drowned while trying to rescue Kishoban, who later remained unconscious in the Hospital for Sick Children while his parents and family kept a constant bedside vigil.
He was taken off life support early yesterday as his parents prayed.
Last night, stricken relatives and Friends gathered at the home of Kishoban's parents.
"He was a very nice kid. Very independent," said cousin Nithja VARATHARAJAN, 18, who described the teen as an extremely bright student in Grade 10 at Woburn Collegiate.
Friends and family said they could easily imagine him succeeding in a career that involved computers and science.
"All his marks were above 90 this term and his lowest mark was 90," the cousin said.
The oldest of three children, Kishoban and his family emigrated to Canada from Sri Lanka in 2000. His brother, 14, and 9-year-old sister both looked up to him, the cousin said. She said the family prayed, believing the critically injured teen would somehow pull through.
"Even when the doctors said they couldn't help him, his mother had faith and believed he'd come home, and now she's really devastated."
A funeral service is planned for Thursday.
Brunthan was buried Saturday in Highland Memorial Gardens on Don Mills Rd., with police officers involved in the rescue effort serving as pallbearers.
Brunthan's family, from Sri Lanka, faces deportation. Canadian security officials say his father, Muralidaran NADARAJAH, is linked to the Tamil Tigers.
