Report: 8-year-old boy first fatality from Hurricane Dorian
Boy drowned on Abaco Island, grandmother says
ABACO ISLAND – The death of an 8-year-old boy in the Bahamas is being reported by local news outlets in the Bahamas as the first fatality from Hurricane Dorian.
Ingrid McIntosh said her daughter -- the boy's mother -- discovered the child's body. They believe he drowned in the rising waters.
"All I can say is that my daughter called from Abaco and said that her son -- my grandson -- is dead. That's it. I don't know what really happened. I think she said he drowned," McIntosh said.
Bahamian authorities have not yet confirmed the death.
