An 8-year-old boy who drowned while swimming at a Raleigh apartment complex last week will be laid to rest this weekend.
A funeral service will be held Saturday for Lamont “Bud” Fields. Family and friends gathered at a prayer vigil Thursday night.
The boy drowned while swimming at a pool at Spring Forest Apartment homes in Raleigh on Aug. 9. Paramedics were able to resuscitate the boy and transported him to WakeMed, where he died, Raleigh police said.
He would have turned 9 later this month.
