The family of a teenage boy who drowned in a Cheshunt lake have paid tribute to him.
Emergency services were called just before 5pm on Monday (8 August) to reports that a 14 year old boy had got into difficulty in North Met Lake, off of Cadmore Lane.
Despite their best efforts to save him, involving the police helicopter and specialist divers, his body was recovered just before 11pm that same night.
The boy has now been named as Lewis Agyei-Sekyireh from Enfield and his family have paid a loving tribute to him.
In a statement, they said: “Lewis was a loving, kind-hearted person loved by everyone who came in contact with him. A multitalented person adored by his friends. Your departure has left a big void in our hearts. We miss you, but will forever love you. We would like to thank our loved ones, our neighbours and all his friends for the love and support shown in these difficult times. We are grateful.”
A post mortem has confirmed drowning as the cause of death and a file is being prepared for the coroner.
