GoFundMe for Fort Erie Children

September 23, 2019

By: Marie Cassidy

The community is pulling together to help two children left orphaned in Fort Erie.

A GoFundMe page is raising money for a young boy and girl, after they lost both of their parents on Saturday.

A five-year-old boy was taken into the Niagara River by his father on Friday, and his mother jumped into to save him.

The young boy is recovering in hospital.

His 29-year-old mother was taken to hospital in critical condition, but did not survive.

The body of his father was found by police on Saturday.

A family friend started the fundraiser, and so far it has raised more than $12,000 of a $15,000 goal.
