It is with heavy hearts and immense grief that we announce the sudden death of our beloved David Ejimofor, a son, brother, cousin, nephew, and friend.
Our beloved David, a vibrant and promising young boy aged 15, tragically lost his life in a drowning accident at Aberavon beach on 19th June 2023. He is a well behaved and God-fearing young boy with an unwavering passion for sports and health. He was always striving to be the best version of himself. He has an infectious smile, caring nature, and boundless enthusiasm. He touched the lives of many.
This heart-breaking incident has left us devastated. As described by locals, “he is a ray of sunshine to all of us”.
David’s dreams of a bright future were cut short, but his memory will forever live on in the hearts of those who knew and loved him.
We welcome the police investigation into this unfortunate incident and await a thorough report.
This is not something we would want anyone else to have to suffer. It is for this reason we are using our dear David’s life as a beacon for change. Thank you for your support, love, and prayers.
