I should hope that most Topix cowards have enough human decency to NOT spout their garbage in the face of an 8 year old.

all you people are apparently just as freaking dumb. It is sad that he died, but the fact is he was not smart enough to survive anyway.
They aren't sure how he ended up in the water. He did not have to cross the creek to get to his destination. There was a comment made about him possibly having a bike. I think they were speculating that he fell into the water, possibly from a bicycle.

Maybe he identified as a fish?

With liberals normalizing mental illness and symptoms going untreated, this possibility shouldn't be left out. This would/could explain why he went into the water.

...or he could of just lost his basketball into the creek while dealing with his bike and jumped in to save it. Kids that age are clumsy.

Either way, tragic loss.
