Family plans memorial for boy, 8, who drowned at Cowabunga Bay

The family of the 8-year-old boy who died after drowning in Cowabunga Bay's wave pool is spending this Monday making funeral arrangements.

Ddaquan Bankston's uncle says the boy was a goofy, bright child and a voracious reader. As a 2nd grader, Daquan was reading at a 4th and 5th grade level at Kit Carson Elementary School.

Instead of enjoying the summer with Daquan before he enters 3rd grade, his family is making arrangements for his memorial. Daquan was rushed to the hospital from Cowabunga Bay's wave pool on June 18 and died Friday night at Sunrise Hospital after five days on life support.
