New information in the weekend drowning of a Bladen County boy at the White Lake Water Festival. The coroner says six-year-old Jaquan McKiever's body was found in 6 to 8 inches of water under Goldston's Pier in White Lake.

SUch a tragic thing. I was at white lake with my teens the night that it happened. I have not been able to get this family off of my mind since. I have prayed and will continue to pray for God's love and peace to rest upon this family. I also have ask my church family in Dunn to keep this family in its prayers. It is a relief to know that they are Christians and know the God that is able to comfort them in this time. In Christ, Michelle

Please teach them:)

Please spend the money and get young ones the lessons to swim. Coming from a parent who did not know how to swim: It is scary for the mother to watch her children in the water. Have the children taught swimming lessons. Treading could have saved this child. Fear of water and living near TONS of it is as bad as building mansions on the shoreline. Death in the end. Or teach 'em to swim.... and float. I am terribly saddened by this whole water drowning. I lost a dear friend of mine in fourth grade from drowning at a computer camp in the eighties. Teach this next generation to survive in the water, so that they can enjoy the ocean and waters they live near. That way, perhaps those very children can grow up and live near water and ALSO know what to do with the leadership we give them.
