Is it teething time for your little one?

 

An investigation has been launched after a young boy lost his life in a boating accident in the USA.

 

The eight-year-old Irish boy died in hospital on Saturday after the incident.

 

The boating accident occurred near Boston last Wednesday.

 

The boat that the boy was travelling on capsized, leading to his fatal injuries. 

 

He is said to have been under water for an extended period of time before being rescued. 

 

The Department of Foreign Affairs is assisting the family involved.

 

A spokesperson for the Plymouth County District Attorney's Office said an investigation was under way into the boy's death, according to RTE.
