We announce with heavy hearts the tragic news of the death of 3-year-old Josiah Toleafoa, who cruelly passed away on his third birthday, which was meant to be a day of joy and celebration.

Witnesses describe the horrifying sight as Josiah’s mother, distraught, screamed and sobbed while paramedics worked frantically to save her son. Josiah was declared dead at the Rady Children’s Hospital in spite of their best attempts. The unthinkable had occurred, shattering the world of this family.

Investigations are currently ongoing on the accident’s circumstances. The driver in question, a 36-year-old whose identity is pending confirmation, was not impaired by drink or drugs. He stayed and assisted the authorities from the spot. The precise reason for the mishap is still a mystery.

The family has banded together during this unbearably difficult time to establish a GoFundMe campaign to help Josiah’s parents with the costs of his funeral. Josiah was a happy youngster, according to his aunt Tatiana Toleafoa, whose smile and kind heart made everyone around him happy. The thought of all the incredible things Josiah may have achieved if his life hadn’t been tragically cut short is heartbreaking.


“This GoFundMe page is for my sweet nephew’s funeral costs and services. He was a little angel who touched so many lives in so many different ways before he was called to Heaven.” “Anything at all, in any amount, would help.”

The owner of Play City donated $2,000, and the landlord matched the amount, demonstrating how the community has come together in support of the bereaved family. But as of right now, no one has been taken into custody.

We are so sorry for Josiah’s family at this unbearable loss. Nothing can compare to the unbearable pain that losing a child can cause a family. We ask that you remember them during this trying time and offer our sincerest condolences to them.

Peace be with you, darling Josiah.
