The life of a 13-year-old Redemption Sharpes youth ended tragically when he was electrocuted on Thursday.

Police have told the media that Danroy John was electrocuted outside his home as a result of an electrical fault.

John’s father, Leon Joseph, said his son was playing marbles in their yard in Trigger Ridge and they went to check for him after he did not respond to their calls.

The teenager was found lying on the ground and it later became evident that he has been electrocuted.

John was enrolled at the Thomas Saunders Secondary School in Kingstown and was to begin Form 2 in September.

Police are investigating.
