It was a tragic and unfortunate morning for the Cato family of St. Patrick’s on the passing of one of their loved ones.
Cordel Cato, a resident of Madeys in St. Patrick’s and form three student of the Grenada Seventh Day Adventist Comprehensive School lost his life in the river while doing what he enjoys most in his leisure time.
Information reaching the Grenada Informer states that on Saturday morning he went out to fish but a few hours later his motionless body was found in the water with blood coming from his mouth.
Although information surrounding his death is very sketchy, speculations circulating suggest that while he was out fishing, he fell and knocked his head on a stone.
The principal of the GSDACS Kimlyn DeCoteau spoke with the Grenada Informer on Wednesday 16th and described Cordel as an average, popular, friendly, jovial child at school that will be greatly missed by members of staff and students of the school. He is remembered for his easy-going friendly attitude to everyone and that caused the students to take his passing quite hard and caused them to have difficult days at school this week.
Friends of the deceased are still struggling to come to grips with his passing describing him as a friendly and outgoing person who they will miss badly.
Cordel also loved football in which he represented one of the teams in St. Patrick’s.
A post mortem was scheduled to determine the actual cause of his death.
