Emotional tributes to ‘sweetheart’ man, 21, who drowned in lake after getting into difficulty swimming during heatwave


EMOTIONAL tributes have been paid to a man whose body was pulled from a lake during the hot weather.

Heartbroken family and friends described Jay Walker, 21, as a “sweetheart” following his death at Lakeside, Doncaster, yesterday.

Fire, police and ambulance crews raced to the beauty spot at around 4.10pm after receiving reports a man had got into difficulty while swimming in the water as temperatures hit 28C.

A helicopter joined the urgent hunt before a body was found.

Formal identification has not yet taken place, but the lad’s loved ones have been informed.

And they have flooded social media with tributes to the “best person”.

Tracy Moore, believed to be Jay’s mum, said: “Sorry Jay, going to miss you lots.

“RIP my sweetheart. You were taken too soon.”

Skye Marie Bowers posted: “To the world you may have been just somebody, but to all of us you were the world.

“God really does take the best people.

“Heaven got the best bed for you up there. Until we meet again.”

Shannon Craft added: “You’ll be missed by so many people.

“We always lose the best. So broken right now. Love you bro.”

And pal Nathan Lee Heard said: “I’m going to miss you bro. It’s time for you to fly high.

“Thanks for everything you did for me. You will always be in my mind and always be in my heart.”

A spokesperson for South Yorkshire Police said: “We are very sorry to report that following earlier information about an incident at Lakeside, Doncaster, a body has now been found.

“Emergency services responded to the lake at around 4.10pm, after receiving calls that a man, aged in the 20s, had got in to difficulty in the water.

“No formal identification has yet taken place. The man’s family have been informed and are being supported by specialist officers.”
