'The Day Liam Dove into the River' by Simon Williams
They still talk about the day Liam dove into the river, stayed down and then came up again, blood streaming down his face. They still talk about his
da and his uncle jumping in together and his da reaching him and pulling him to the shore and carrying him across the field to the road and getting a ride to the hospital and Liam being stitched up and sent home and being kept off school for a week. They still talk about him waking up and asking for his da and then his uncle. They still talk about his uncle.
