A teenage boy who bravely tried to save another girl who was drowning in Dublin has tragically passed away.
Talented footballer Ricky Osagie (13) was one of three youngsters rushed to hospital around 6.15pm last night after the incident at a man-made lake in the Waterville Hall residential complex in Blanchardstown.
It is understood a young girl got into difficulty in the lake and Ricky and another girl came to her assistance but they also got into difficulty.
Passers-by managed to pull the two girls from the water quickly but took longer to locate Ricky.  
The teenagers were rushed to hospital while a witness said three or four adults who came to the assistance of the children received medical attention wrapped in insulation foil.
Ricky was in intensive care last night and but sadly lost his fight for life and passed away around 4am this morning.
Friends paid tribute to brave Ricky on Facebook today.
Alisha Morgan said, “You died a hero and will be known as a hero R.I.P remember the 20th June."
Ricky was a talented young footballer who played with Corduff Football Club and had been chosen for the FAI’s Emerging Talent Programme.
He had also attracted the interests of football scouts from the UK and showed signs he could have made it as a professional footballer.
Corduff FC released a statement saying they were saddened at the death of “the great” Ricky Osagie.
“We all know each other in the club, however everyone knew Ricky on and off the pitch - be it his fancy hair styles, his shimmy dance after scoring goals or just his all-round cheerful, confident personality. He was a seriously gifted footballer,” said the statement. 
Our thoughts are with Ricky's loved ones at this time.
