The family of a 12-year-old boy who drowned at his apartment complex’s pool on Tuesday is now asking the Indianapolis community for your help to pay for his funeral. Charles Obu-Darko and his sister moved here to Indy from Ghana to be with their father about a year ago. The family says people are asking how they can help, and they say financial resources right now are critical to their stability. A GoFundMe account has been set up to help pay for the final arrangements of the 6th grader at Eastwood Middle School.
