Noah Abbot, the toddler who disappeared after his mother’s fiery car crash in San Bernardino County, California, on March 3, was found in an aqueduct on Thursday.
KTLA 5 reports that a red Volkswagen convertible submerged into water after crashing into a railing and falling into the California Aqueduct in Hesperia. Four people were inside the car, including Christina Eileen Estrada, 31, and her three children: Elijah Estrada, 10, Jeremiah Abbott, 3, and Noah Abbott, 2.

Both Elijah and Jeremiah were found unconscious. Elijah was injured but expected to survive. Christina Estrada and Jeremiah died in the accident. The youngest, Noah, had been missing until Thurdsay. He was found around a mile away from the crash. The little boy likely drowned but an official cause of death has not yet been made public.
Divers discovered Noah’s body at around noon. Police stated that the accident at this point, seemed to be a tragic occurrence with no foul play. The children’s father was not in the car.

Meanwhile, loved ones set up a GoFundMe page for the family, and after reaching over $25,000 from generous donors, the campaign was closed.
“Even though my baby is in this aqueduct, he is an angel in heaven, and those babies are angels in heaven and we have to just go through the grieving process,” Shayla Rhodes said, the kids’ grandmother.
