5-year-old Benjamin ‘Kamau’ Hosch III drowned at Cochran Mill Nature Center in a waterfall on July 24, 2017 near Atlanta, Georgia. Kamau was attending Camp Cricket with 13 other children as part of a summer camp. On that day the children took a trip to the center to have lunch, hike and play in the water fall. The only problem, Kamau didn’t know how to swim.
Kamau was gone for almost an hour before camp workers noticed that he was missing from the group.
A missing child report was filed and the Chattahoochee Hills Police and Fire department, as well as surrounding jurisdictions, responded and began searching.
Officers talked with the camp director, counselors and others that responded to get a better understanding of what happened to Kamau. In addition to talking with camp members, police also talked with the family.
Speaking out after the tragedy Kamau’s mother wants other people to know that, “What happened to my son shouldn’t happen to anyone…No one should ever feel as broken as I feel right now.”
The day camp has been ordered to close after the death of Benjamin ‘Kamau’ Hosch III.
