Manchester boy, 10, who drowned in Mass. pond remembered as 'very special'
Alex Glennon, a fourth-grader at Henry Wilson Elementary, drowned in Morses Pond in Wellesley, Mass., Saturday evening while visiting friends with his family, according to Wellesley police.
“He was just a great little boy, and everyone at the school loved him and treated him like gold,” Potvin said. “This is devastating.”
“I just saw him Friday, and heard he was leaving the school and the family was moving to Massachusetts,” said Potvin. “I told him to make sure he stopped in before he left, so he could pick a stuffed dog to take with him. Then I upped it to two dogs, then three and then four. He was laughing and laughing at that. I can’t believe this happened.”
Brennan said grief counselors would be available today as students and staff return to class.
