Boy dies after being swept away by floodwater, after celebrating 11th birthday with twin brother

You never know when tragedy will strike. It is immensely heartbreaking to learn about a young death. And the impact a young death leaves on the family is lifelong.

Young Alexander “Cade” Law has left behind a big hole in not only his family but his community in general.

Alexander “Cade” Law was living with his family in Bentonville, Arkansas. The little boy was born in Johnson, with his twin brother Chandler Law. The duo had just begun 5th grade at Ruth Barker Middle School and were incredibly excited about what the new school year would bring.

On Monday, the 29th of August, young Cade passed away leaving behind his family and friends in heartbreak. As for Meg’s mother, Chrissy Law shares that she remains on life support at a hospital.

Chrissy said, “She is a true hero. It gives me comfort to know that my baby was not down there alone. Please keep her family in your thoughts. We are all hoping for a miracle.”

Young Cade had just turned 11 years old a few months ago, celebrating the birthday with his best friend and twin brother, Chandler Law.

The family created a GoFundMe page to help pay for end-of-life expenses for young Cade, in it thanking first responders who tried their best to rescue Cade alive but were only able to bring his body back.

The family aimed to raise $25,000 but the donations totaled almost $40,000 instead.

The family is still reeling from this tremendous loss. Chrissy narrated her feelings in a Facebook post, saying, “I can not even describe this pain. I can not even imagine how life will go on without him. I can not imagine Chandler without his twin. He was so very amazing. And loved so very much.”

Local Bentonville Deputy Fire Chief Kevin Boydston and Deputy Director of transportation for the city Dan Weese also shared condolences for the family’s loss and advised residents to be careful during heavy rains and flash flooding. The advice for children to not play in the rain was also given.

While the family navigates this tremendous loss, our hearts go out to them. We hope and pray they are able to move on from this incredible tragedy and ask you to do the same.
