"There is no greater love…

…than to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. —John 15:13

A 13-year-old boy has drowned after jumping into a river to save a friend.

Declan Shanley, from Summerston in Glasgow [Scotland], was swept away by a strong current in the River Kelvin, near the West of Scotland Science Park.

He had gone to the aid of a friend who had strayed into deep water in an area known locally as the beach.

The girl was able to get back to shore. However, Declan, described by his head teacher as a “popular boy”, was pronounced dead in hospital.
