STAMFORD - The family of a Bronx boy who drowned in a Stamford hotel swimming pool said a final goodbye to the 7-year-old Saturday.
Jamir Wilson was on a family holiday trip when he died at the Stamford Hilton Hotel on Christmas Eve. Police say he was pronounced dead at Stamford Hospital less than an hour after he entered the pool.
Leneniece Vanterpool, Jamir's mother, says he was so excited to go in the water that he accidentally jumped into the deep end of the pool.
Vanterpool asks people to contribute to 'The Jamir Wilson Burial Fund' to help shoulder the funeral expenses.
