    Tragedy: Drowning Victim Passes Away

    A Borough Park boy who fell into a bungalow colony pool yesterday passed away early this morning at a Westchester County hospital • Full Story

    A Borough Park boy who fell into a bungalow colony pool yesterday passed away early this morning at a Westchester County hospital.

    Shimon Weiss was at the KMS Bungalow Colony on Mount Hope Road in Swan Lake with his family when the four year old wandered off alone Sunday afternoon and apparently climbed the fence surrounding the colony’s swimming pool, according to a relative who asked not to be identified.

    Family members noticed that the little boy had gone missing at approximately 6:15 PM and began searching for him. The boy’s father checked the pool and discovered his son in the water.

    Catskills Hatzolah was called to the scene and the child taken to Catskill Regional Medical Center before being airlifted to Westchester Medical Center in Valhalla where he passed away at approximately 6:20 AM this morning.

    The Levaya will take place at 2:30 this afternoon at the Chernobyl Beis Medrash at 12th Avenue and 41st Street in Borough Park, with burial to take place at the Satmar Cemetery on Schunnemunk Road in Kiryas Yoel.
