A family’s dream of a new life in Canada turned into a nightmare Monday night after their young son drowned in a swimming pool in Saint-Leonard, Quebec.The 6-year-old boy named Bukumi was the oldest of three children, living with their mother, 31-year-old Bukola Babayemi, and had only just arrived in Quebec, Canada, from Nigeria, via the United States, in April.

Witnesses told CTV Montreal that the swimming pool, located outside an apartment building in the city’s Saint-Leonard neighbourhood, was crowded on Monday around 7 p.m. when the boy drowned. The child slipped under the water and was spotted unconscious at the bottom of the pool, witnesses said.

There was one lifeguard on duty, witnesses say, and she jumped into the pool and pulled the child to the deck. She immediately performed chest compressions on the child but was unable to revive the boy.
Speaking with the Journal de Montreal, the boy’s mother, Bukola Babayemi, said they moved into their apartment two days before the tragedy. The grieving woman said the family of four decided to leave their empty apartment and go to the pool to try and beat the heat.

Before entering the water she told her son to stay close, but for a quick moment lost sight of him while tending to her other children who are 3-years and 10-months old. It was after that handful of seconds that the boy was found under the water.

Raynald Hawkins of the Quebec Lifesaving Society told CTV Montreal, when children are involved that’s all it takes.”A drowning situation for kids is only 15 to 20 seconds. It’s very silent,” he said.Witness Diane Lambert said the child’s mother was in a state of nervous shock and was rushed to the hospital to be treated for shock.
“I just see the little boy there on the floor and he was trying to breathe and she was pumping the heart, and he never came back,” Lambert told CTV Montreal.

“The Marriage Crashed After 4 Months, Then Came Alive Again” — Veteran Filmmaker, Ugezu J. Ugezu Narrates Now Negligence Is The Cause Of Many Big Problems Holding So Many People

Published

He wrote: “Since her marriage crashed after just four months, this very decent lady has been trying to understand what happened.

She went into that marriage determined to make it. She was prepared to be a wife just like her mother. In that four months, she was spectacularly wonderful, but still, the marriage crashed.

She was devastated. There was nothing she had not done to reconcile with her man and nothing worked. He flares up once he sees her and some pastors have told her that the man she married belonged to a cult, and that he will kill her if she goes back. Another told her that she should thank her God that it ended.

But this lady refused to give up on her man. She knew him very well and was convinced he was not into all those demonic things.

Finally, a benevolent dibia afa, out of pity, meets her in a gas station and tells her what happened. [You know one of those seers who will see you and start saying things. She almost dismissed the man and was about driving out when the seer hit the melting point…. your marriage can still work if you locate Nwanyi Ukwa and pay the money.

She is curious…. who is Nwanyi Ukwa? What money do you speak of? Now the coast was cleared for an elaborate explanation.

Unknown to this innocent lady, the woman (Nwanyi Ukwa) who the husband engaged to cook special meal for his close friends, a night before their elaborate marriage, was not paid her money in full. She tried to collect her money and the man refused to pay. That woman it was who went back to their village in Okpuno Agu and laid the curse…. As you have refused to pay me my money, this your marriage will not last.

This lady, still determined to have her marriage work, located the woman and paid the money. Like magic, the unexplainable trouble that ended the marriage has evaporated and husband and wife have reconciled.

So many big problems holding many people were caused by stvpid negligence. Learn to ask questions.”
