Funeral of a four-year-old boy who drowned after slipping from jetty is held
Tuesday 04 September 2012
The funeral of a four-year-old boy who drowned after slipping from a jetty in Somerset while on a family holiday is to take place.
Dylan Cecil was visiting his grandparents when he fell into the water at Burnham-on-Sea on Sunday August 19. He was said to have been trying to get a closer look at the sea when the incident happened.
The youngster, from Kettering in Northamptonshire, disappeared from view while members of his family were enjoying a day on the coast.
His parents, Rachel McCollum and Darren Cecil, attempted to save their boy, while emergency services quickly launched a search and rescue operation.
His body was found by a member of the public four days later - and less than half a mile away from where he was last seen - at a nearby sailing club.
Dylan's funeral is to take place at St Mary's Church in Kettering.
