Tragic News: Five-Year-Old Boy Found in Thames Pronounced Dead

Heartbreak has swept through the community as the Metropolitan Police confirmed the devastating loss of five-year-old Daniel Alaby. The young boy, who had gone missing from his home in Thamesmead, south-east London, was found in the River Thames after an extensive search effort.

A police appeal was launched on Friday to locate Daniel, prompting a widespread effort to locate the missing child. However, hopes were dashed when officers searching for Daniel discovered a child in the river at approximately 6:23 pm.

Efforts to resuscitate the child were immediately initiated by police officers at the scene, who administered CPR until paramedics from the London Ambulance Service arrived. Despite the valiant efforts of emergency responders, Daniel was transported to the hospital where he was later pronounced dead.

The tragic news has left Daniel’s family devastated, and they are currently receiving support from police officers during this unimaginably difficult time.
