Po­lice and emer­gency ser­vices were called to the scene of a re­ported drown­ing in Waipuku­rau just be­fore 3pm on Oc­to­ber 23.

A young boy, aged 2 years old, was re­ported to have drowned in a res­i­den­tial swim­ming pool. The tod­dler has since been named as Costyn Tawa Hema. A Givealit­tle page has been set up to sup­port the fam­ily. The fam­ily friend who set up the page de­scribed the tod­dler as shy, but a char­ac­ter. “He was loved and cher­ished by all.”

Costyn’s death will be re­ferred to the coro­ner.
