Parents of 24-year old Kenyan nurse, Hellen Wendy Nyabuto, who drowned in a swimming pool in Toronto, Canada on August 18, have had a chance to visit the pool that took her life.
Reports indicate that the father and mother managed to travel to Ontario in Canada as they make plans to get a closure on her death ahead of the repatriation of her body to Kenya.
John Nyabuto had last month made a passionate appeal for financial assistance to help the struggling family to bring their beloved Wendy’s body back home for a customary burial.
“I have cried all through since I got the sad information. Her friends have been calling explaining what happened. I’m wondering how the body will get back to Kenya. I have lost my daughter and there is nothing I can do. I don’t know the cost of transporting the body back home, the pain is too much. I request for help,” Nyabuto had said then.
Following the appeal, Hellen Wendy’s family had successfully launched a GoFundMe campaign to raise the badly needed cash to meet the repatriation as well as funeral costs.
In a series of photos widely circulated on social media, Wendy’s mother is seen seated at the edge of the swimming pool beside her husband as they place flowers outside the pool.
Wendy’s parents are accompanied by a number of other relatives of hers as they place flowers near the deep end where she met her demise as the streamed the session live.
The Kenyan nurse, who had recently relocated to Ontario, Canada, drowned while swimming on a Friday afternoon while on Facebook Live chatting with her online friends.
In the eerie video, Wendy jovially makes a few dives while chatting her Facebook friends then drifts to the deep end where she struggles and screams for a few minutes before the water goes still only for her lifeless body to be discovered by two Caucasian men three hours later.
