Schoolboy Drowns after Diving into canal to Face his Phobia for water

A teenager died after jumping with his friends into a canal located in Middleton, Manchester, England, while trying to overcome his fear of water. The victim, Flavio Rafael Pizarro, who is 13-year-old, died in a hospital nine days after he was pulled out of the canal. However, with the permission of his family and doctors, his organs were donated to a patient in that hospital.

There are no warning signs in the area of the Rochdale Canal, Middleton, Manchester, where Rafael had jumped into.

His family has beckoned on the Canal and River Trust to do more to warn young people of the dangers of jumping into water.
