He was 13 years old and playing at the water’s edge with his family: missing since Monday, the body of a teenager was found in a canal

The teenager went missing on Monday.

He died jumping from a bridge into the Jonage canal. This Tuesday, a body was found late in the morning in the canal. It could be a teenager who has been missing since Monday afternoon in Decines-Charpieu, a town near Lyon, reported Le Progrès.

Missing since Monday

Monday, around 4 p.m., the Rhône firefighters received a call to report the disappearance of the teenager. He was playing with his family, on the edge of the Jonage canal, before falling into the water in the town of Décines-Charpieu (Rhône).

Discovered during training

His body was finally found this morning, while firefighting water teams were participating in training in the area. Entrusted to the police, the identity of the victim has not yet been established, but it is very likely that it is the teenager who disappeared the day before, according to Le Progrès.

“An absolute drama”

The mayor of Meyzieu, Christophe Quiniou, regretted “an absolute drama”. He shared his very strong emotion after learning of the death “of a young Majolan of 13 years old, jumping from a point in the Jonage canal”.
