Nakara Shopping Centre, Nakara Terrace, Nakara Fathers anguish over his lost son Lado Lazorouss family are shattered after his tragic death By NADJA HAINKE He always said he wanted to be a good boy he wanted to be the best. I cant forget his strongwords towardsme and he smiled all the time THE father of a little boy who drowned in a Darwin water park has spoken about his love for his son. Lado Lazorous will never celebrate his fifth birthday on June 26. The young child died in hospital on Sunday evening after drowning at Leanyer Recreation Park. He left behind two brothers and a sister. His Sudanese family wished to stay anonymous but allowed the NT News to publish the boys name and photo. Speaking from the family home in Karama, his father said the sudden loss broke his heart but he was grateful for the four years he had had with his son. He described Lado as a happy boy who loved watching movies, including cartoons Toy Story and Ben 10. He had Ben 10 T-shirts and Ben 10 shorts he had Ben 10 everything, he said. He always said he wanted to be a good boy he wanted to be the best. I cant forget his strong words towards me and he smiled all the time. Members of Darwins African community gathered at the family home to show their support yesterday. Nearly 20 men were sitting on plastic chairs in the front yard of the one-storey brick house while women and children were hidden inside. The father said the last time he saw his son was at home early on Sunday. Lado had snuck into his parents bed just after midnight. I remember I came out to drink some water and he knew and just entered the bedroom, he said. I came back and I said: What are you doing? and he said My room is scary. The father, who is a security guard, left for work the following morning. That was the last time I saw him, he said. Unfortunately when I came back from work he was already gone. Lado was found not breathing and unconscious in the deep end of the popular plunge pool in Leanyer. Another boy reportedly pulled his lifeless body to shore before lifeguards and paramedics tried to revive him. He was declared dead at Royal Darwin Hospital a short time later. His mother and her friends who were nearby were unable to stop the tragedy from unfolding. Police are still investigating the cause of the death and a file is being prepared for the NT Coroner. His father was too upset to speak about the circumstances surrounding the tragedy. It makes me unhappy, he said. A date for the funeral is yet to be decided. Sat nav traps thieves QUICK-thinking police caught a thief by using modern technology yesterday morning. They found a youth with an in-car satellite navigation device and used it to track the owner. When officers arrived at the owners house, they found his car had been raided. That was a good result, Senior Sergeant Tony Deutrom said. A police street patrol stopped the youth and his two mates, aged 15, 16 and 16, in Gray, Palmerston about 4.30am. The officers allegedly found the group with an iPod, jewellery, cigarette lighters and the GPS device. They turned it on and found the owners address in Gosse St in Gunn, SenSgt Deutrom said. They found a vehicle at the residence had been broken into. The youths were arrested but later released. Sen-Sgt Deutrom said they were expected to be charged with stealing and interfering with a vehicle. Police believe the three were responsible for a spate of car break-ins overnight in Palmerston. FIREBUGS STRIKE ARSONISTS set fire to a pile of cardboard boxes outside a Palmerston supermarket early yesterday. The fire broke out in the Woolworths loading dock about 2.25am. Police searched in vain for the firebugs. Senior Sergeant Daniel Shean said: Cardboard does go upwhen it gets going. THIEVES THWARTED TWO girls fled after trying to steal a car from an Alice Springs house yesterday morning. They broke into the home, took the ignition keys. The householder woke up and his son raced out to confront the teenagers. Senior Sergeant Darrell Kerr appealed for anybody who was near Red Sands Court about 4am to contact police on 131 444.
