Alyvia Navarro – April, 2013



WAREHAM, Mass. —A 3-year-old autistic girl pulled from a Wareham pond Tuesday died at a Boston Hospital Wednesday.


Alyvia Navarro was pronounced dead at 3:50 p.m. Wednesday at Boston Children’s Hospital.

According to Wicked Local, the autistic child was located by Wareham Harbormaster’s assistants in Dick’s Pond, approximately 25 yards from shore “in an unresponsive condition” Tuesday afternoon after she had been reported missing, police said.

Personnel from the Wareham Police Dept., Onset Fire Dept., Wareham EMS, Wareham Harbormaster Dept., and K-9 Units responded to lot 14 at the Lakeside Trailer Park on the missing child report at 12:45 p.m. Tuesday.

According to the child’s grandmother, Valerie Navarro, 3-year-old Alyvia wandered from her care and had been missing for approximately 25 minutes, when she called police. She also reported that the 3-year-old child was autistic.

An immediate and extensive search of the area was initiated and SEMLEC Search & Rescue Team was notified to respond, police said. Approximately one hour later, she was located by Wareham Harbormaster’s assistants in Dick’s Pond, approximately 25 yards from the shore, in the unresponsive condition. The child was immediately brought to shore, where paramedics administered to her before transporting her to Tobey Hospital in Wareham, where medical treatment continued until the child was transferred to Boston Children’s Hospital in Boston, via MedFlight.

The incident is being investigated by the Wareham Police Dept. Detective Division and Mass. State Police C-PAC Unit.

    • I wish that I knew. It has been three and a half years since Mason died, and it honestly still feels like yesterday. You keep breathing because you have to. You move forward because you can’t go back. You never move on, because that one day put your life on pause forever. I am so sorry for your loss, and trust me, I know how futile and empty those words are.
