Families and friends came together to pay their final respect to the late 16 -year-old Fransisco Vincent Humphrey at the Nadera Catholic Parish this morning.
Fransisco’s body had been recovered in Nadera by a Joint Search Team after he was swept away by strong currents on Monday afternoon.
According to an eye witness, he had been playing with a group of friends in a ground near Duvula Road, when he went to retrieve the ball and slipped near a culvert and was swept away by strong currents.
His body was later retrieved by a group of boys downstream near a mangrove swamp at the Moala Settlement. He was laid to rest at the Suva Cemetery.
