Friends, Family Mourn Teen Who Drowned in Delaware River

Friends and family gathered to mourn a teen boy who drowned last week in the Delaware River.

Investigators say DeAndray Lindsay, 16, was swimming in the Delaware River Thursday along Delaware Avenue and Beach Street in Philadelphia around 5 p.m. when he went under the water and never surfaced. The Marine Unit arrived at the location and pulled Lindsay out of the water. The teen was taken to the hospital where he was pronounced dead at 6:39 p.m.

Loved ones gathered at Penn Treaty Park Monday night during a vigil for Lindsay. They brought balloons, lit candles and said their final goodbyes to the teen. Lindsay’s family created a GoFundMe page to raise money for the teen’s funeral.
