According to NOR, Rodriguez-Sane and Christman were two of five student rowers on the boat that overturned as a consequence of the incident.

According to the non-profit, the boys’ coach and “three gallant teammates” assisted in bringing Rodriguez-Sane back to shore before he was brought to a nearby hospital. On his 12th birthday, he died.

Langston was a brilliant light in this world, NOR wrote, adding later, and he left a legacy that will live on through everyone who were privileged enough to meet him.

Christman is also recalled for his “kind heart,” which touched the soul of every individual he encountered, according to NOR.

According to NOR’s GoFundMe account, Rodriguez-grandpa Sane stated, this is a loss for the world. Someday, this youngster was going to be president.

NOR has said that it is working with both local authorities and USRowing to conduct an inquiry on the occurrence.

The GoFundMe effort for the boys’ family had generated more than $38,000 of its $50,000 target as of Tuesday afternoon.

Thank you for the assistance of these precious families at this time of incomprehensible sadness, the non-profit wrote in its campaign description. They ask that everyone pray for Gavin’s and Langston’s families and loved ones as they embark on what will be a long and difficult rebuilding path, they wrote.

Rest in peace champs. We extend our sympathies to both families during this tough period.
