(Mankato, MN) –  A Go Fund Me page has been created to help the family of the boy who drowned at Rapidan County Park.

Denilson Fidel Funes De Leon, 11, was swimming in the Blue Earth River during a family outing when the current pulled him into deeper waters.   It took searchers several days to locate his body.

The fundraising page was created to help his family raise the money needed to send his body to Guatemala for burial.
