BAHAMAS (KSNT) — A grandmother of an 8-year-old boy is telling local news outlets in the Bahamas that her grandson drowned in the rising waters of Abaco Island.
McIntosh’s daughter reported the disappearance of her two children, a boy and a girl.
Ingrid McIntosh told Bahamas’ Eyewitness News that her grandson drowned in Abaco Islands’ rising floodwaters.
“All I can say is that my daughter called from Abaco and said that her son — my grandson — is dead. That’s it. I don’t know what really happened. I think she said he drowned,” McIntosh said.
While the family recovered the 8-year-old’s body, the boy’s sister is still missing.
Authorities in the Bahamas have not yet officially announced any fatalities from Hurricane Dorian.
