    Very, Very sad. Why are children allowed to go on and dive off the Jetty in the first place? Children are very adventurous and we as parents must try our best to safeguard them from harm. May he rest in peace.

    Jacob Moses,was doing what we all did growing up around Oistin’s
    ‘Having Fun’.
    As kids we do not see the danger while doing fun things and some of us become the unfortunate ones.
    To his Mother and Grandmother I say be strong,we share your sorrow.
