Go-fund me page started for Welland teen that drowned in Welland River
A go-fund me page has been started for the family of an 18 year old who tragically died last week.
Gage Rockwell drowned in the Welland River on Friday while swimming with a friend.
Niagara Regional Police say the teen was swimming in an area adjacent to a campground on Stanley Avenue when he started struggling. Nearby campers attempted to help but couldn't reach him.
The fund has been set up by relatives of Rockwell with a goal to raise 10-thousand to help with funeral expenses.
Since Saturday the fund has raised more than $6,000.

Three goals in the first 2:35 of the game propelled the IceDogs to a 5-2 exhibition win in Kitchener. Stephen Dhillon was outstanding in goal as Billy Burke's Dogs faced a large number of shorthanded situations.
Ondrej Machala scored two goals and added an assist as the IceDogs dropped a 7-5 decision to the Kitchener Rangers. The third game of the pre-season was played before a great crowd at the Fleming Centre in Beamsville.
Two first period goals in under a minute were not enough as Barrie held off the IceDogs 4-2 Thursday night. Drew Hunter and Andrew Bruder both scored their first goals in the opening twenty.
