Your child is everything to you as a parent; you want to make sure they know how much you value them. One family went through hell when a day to remember turned into a nightmare.
They intended to plan a birthday party, but instead they organized a funeral. That narrative is tragic.
Josiah Toleafoa, a young boy, was on his way to Play City to celebrate his third birthday with other children when tragedy struck. In Chula Vista, San Diego, a toddler was hit by a car while playing in the parking lot of Play City, a kid-friendly indoor party venue.
According to a witness to the horrific incident, Josiah’s mother sobbed frantically as paramedics struggled to save the young boy’s life. Sadly, the efforts were in vain because Josiah passed away at Rady Children’s Hospital.
Police claim that the car’s 36-year-old driver stayed at the scene and cooperated. According to police, there is no evidence that using drugs or alcohol contributed to the collision.
Family members set up a GoFundMe page to raise money for Joseph’s funeral expenses using social media. The little boy was described as loving and considerate. “JOSIAH drew the family together; his incredible smile and adoring heart radiated joy in any area. He couldn’t perform his amazing feats in the time available. In her essay, Tatiana Toleafoa, the boy’s aunt, stated, “I KNOW HE WOULD HAVE MADE A DIFFERENCE IN THE WORLD. ”.
When asked why the campaign was started, the woman continued, “We’re doing this gofundme to help with my sweet nephew’s funeral expenses and services for the little angel that touched so many lives in so many different ways before he was called to Heaven.”.
Any amount at all would be beneficial. We want to be able to bury him so that we can say our final goodbyes and never forget the little boy who loved us with such an enormous heart. We are incredibly appreciative that our cherished family and friends are here to help us through this terrible loss. ”.
The owner of Play City claimed that the landlord will match the $2,000 that he is giving the Josiah family.
Nobody has been detained in relation to the accident as of yet, despite the fact that the case is still being investigated.
This is tragic news, to say the least. We send Josiah Toleafoa’s family our condolences during this trying time. Please join us in thinking of and praying for the family.
