Failed  rescue - Young Hero dies

Failed rescue - Young Hero dies

Personal message

My name is Claire Love.  I have been really touched by the story of a young 14-year-old boy who died while trying to rescue his 7-year-old neighbour from drowning while walking home from school. The little hero's name is Thandokuhle Nzuza, from Darnall in KZN.  Both boys have since been found deceased :(

A young hero lost his life trying to save his 7-year-old neighbour, Bandile Makhoba, while both boys were walking home from school.  Bandile was swept off the low-level Soweto bridge into the flooded river.
The hectic storms in the area resulted in water flowing over the bridge they walk home along and the younger one was washed into the river.  Thandokuhle went after him to try and save him. I would like to raise funds for both boys' funerals and money for both families for their tragic loss of their children due to the heavy storms in KZN.

We can honour a young hero who died while trying to save his friend. I hope to help 2 families in need who have suffered a tragic loss.No amount of money will bring these boys back however it will definitely lighten the burden.

The money will be split between both families for funeral costs.

Please read the story here.
