“Kamau’s parents would not have allowed him to slide on a waterfall or swim without his life jacket,” he said.
Kamau went missing for up to 45 minutes, Julison said.
Fairburn police assisted Chattahoochee Hills police in the search for the child, Deputy Chief Anthony Bazydlo told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Attempts to reach Chattahoochee Hills police have been unsuccessful so far.
A volunteer discovered Kamau in a small pool of water, according to reports. The Fulton County Medical Examiner’s Office early Monday confirmed his death with The AJC.
Kamau’s parents and their attorney spoke about their son’s death Monday morning during a press conference at their attorney’s office.
“This isn’t an accident,” Atlanta attorney L. Chris Stewart said. “This is gross, insane negligence."
The investigation into the incident is ongoing.
