THE family of a promising amateur boxer say they are “heartbroken” at the tragic death of a teenage on Monday.
13-year-old Jay Moffett tragically lost his life in a drowning accident yesterday in the Canal Court area of Scarva, Co Down.
He was rushed to hospital by paramedics where he later died.
His devastated family said in a statement this afternoon: “We are heartbroken by the loss of our beautiful Jay.
“He was a much loved son, brother, grandson, nephew and cousin who lit up the lives of everyone who knew him in his 13 years.
“We are grateful for the support we have received at this terrible time and would ask that we now be given the space to grieve in private.”
