Police Officer Recused from Water attempting to help save 17 year old who ran from police.

Police recovered a body from a canal in Hackney following an earlier call to concerns for the welfare of a 17-year-old male.
Despite attempts to rescue the teenager, including an officer entering the water – who himself had to be assisted by a canonist – the attempt to rescue him failed.

Police were called at 15:04hrs on Wednesday, 29 July, to an address in Clapton E5, where the family of a 17-year-old man were concerned for his welfare.

Officers attended the location, but the man had left the house by smashing a window prior to police arrival at 15:12hrs.
A search of the surrounding area was subsequently conducted by police officers.
At around 15:50hrs, somebody matching the description of the man was seen by officers on Hackney Marshes.
On seeing police, the man ran off. Officers tried to stop the man in order to assist him, but, prior to police officers reaching him, the male entered the canal near to Lea Bridge Road.
A life aid was thrown to the male but the male went under the water.
An officer then entered the canal in an attempt to rescue him.
The police officer was then assisted and returned to the bank by a member of the public on a kayak.
A search of the canal and surrounding area was conducted by police officers with the assistance of dog units, the police helicopter, the Marine Policing Unit and London Fire Brigade. London Ambulance Service also attended the scene.
At around 17:20hrs, the body of a man was recovered from the water by officers from the Met’s Martine Marine Policing Unit. We await a post-mortem examination and formal identification.
The Independent Police Complaints Commission has confirmed they will be investigating the incident.

A Fake fundraising page has been set up in the name of six-year-old Daisy Dymyd who died.

The fraudulent profile is claiming to be raising money for the funeral of Daisy.

Daisy Dymyd was found unresponsive at her home in Tuxford, Nottinghamshire on Monday and was pronounced dead after being airlifted to Sheffield Children’s Hospital.

Nottinghamshire Police have now issued a warning after a user claiming to be Daisy’s uncle launched a fake JustGiving page, raising £140 before it was reported by her family themselves.

A spokeswoman said the family had not been raising money, and said officers were working to get the account removed.

In a tweet posted on Friday, the force urged people not to donate.

Daisy’s family have said she was our “happy little girl”

“Our beautiful daughter was the centre of our world and we can’t believe she’s gone,” they said.

“She will be so missed by everyone that knew her. She was a such a happy little girl who lit up our lives and made the world brighter.”

Police have made no arrests in relation to her death or the Just Giving Page.
