When you send your child to camp, you hope they'll have fun, make new friends, and return home safely. But for parents of a 7-year-old boy, the unthinkable has happened. Kyzr Willis was found dead just hours after he was reported missing from his South Boston day camp, and the whole city is mourning alongside his mom, dad, and brother.

What should have been a beautiful day at the beach ended in tragedy as the body of the little boy who was scheduled to enter first grade in the fall was found in the water not far from the bathhouse where he was supposed to be changing. 

Naturally, his family is devastated and has plenty of questions as to how something like this could happen to this adorable boy who was remembered as a good swimmer and filled with energy.

Kyzr's 9-year-old brother was attending the same camp, so we can only imagine how heartbreaking it is for him.

Gofundme page has been set up to help the Dorchester family in their hour of need. 

"What is known is that those that knew Kyzr and were blessed to have shared in his life will forever miss him and hold a special place in their hearts for him," the organizer of the page writes.

Our hearts break for these parents, who probably imagined their kids splashing together in the water, enjoying a fun-filled summer day.
