Anthony Gordon, a 13-year-old student of Wismar/Christianburg Secondary School, reportedly drowned at around 13:00 hrs on Sunday at ‘Buck Town’ Creek, Wismar, Linden.
Gordon, who resided at One Mile Wismar, with his mother, Keisha Daenty, was in the company of two friends, ages 10 and 14 years.
According to a statement from Police Headquarters, they were all swimming when Gordon reportedly ran into the water and remained submerged for some time.
At this point, his two friends raised an alarm.
Gordon’s body was later discovered at the bottom of the Creek in a motionless state. The body was fished out and taken to the Linden Hospital Complex, where he was pronounced dead.
The body was examined, but no marks of violence were seen, after which it was taken to the G-Jetsco Mortuary, awaiting a Post Mortem Examination.
