Buncrana toddler drowns in Latvia


IT is being reported that a three-year-old boy from Buncrana has drowned while visiting his grandparents in Latvia.

Rolands Letins was visiting his parents’ native country when he drowned last week.

“The management and staff of Cockhill Community Pre-school are heartbroken at this tragic news. We are numbed by it.
“We have passed on our condolences to Rolands’ parents and his family.”

It is understood that Rolands, who was visiting his maternal grandparents in the town of Cesis, will be laid to rest in Latvia.
