The father of a five-year-old boy, who tragically passed away in the hospital after being rescued from the River Thames yesterday evening, is profoundly distraught since the heartbreaking discovery.

A rapid police search was initiated to locate Daniel Alaby after he disappeared from his residence in Thamesmead, situated in south-east London, on the previous day.

Daniel, last seen with his sibling around 5:30 pm, was retrieved from the river at 6:23 pm, as stated by the Metropolitan Police.

An anonymous local resident informed The Sun that Daniel’s father was deeply shaken upon learning of the incident, describing him as an “absolute wreck.”

The resident stated, “Daniel loves water. He’s drawn to the water.”

She further shared, “His dad this morning was saying: ‘We keep the doors locked. How did he get out?'”

Police initiated CPR before the arrival of paramedics from the London Ambulance Service. Daniel was transported to the hospital in critical condition and was later pronounced deceased, according to the police.

It has come to light that Daniel is the third individual discovered in the River Thames since Thursday.

Following a report of a body floating in the River Thames, authorities recovered a man’s body near Westminster Bridge after being alerted around 2:25 pm on Friday of the same week.
