Yesterday a child in my city was killed, accidentally, by a passing train. This child, who was 11 years old, was locally known as a hero. Jaydon, who, while fishing with a friend, noticed a non-responsive man floating in the ocean, swam out to bring that man to shore where others attempted CPR. The swimmer did not survive, but Jaydon’s selfless act was greatly appreciated by all in our city.
Thankfully, Salem has come together to help this family. Do you have time and capacity to assist this family? Please do: The city has established a fund at Salem Five Bank to assist the Dancy family. Donations in the form of check or money order can be sent to the Jaydon Dancy Fund, c/o Salem Five, 210 Essex St., Salem, MA 01970.
