FREDERICTON, N.B.- The funeral for a nine year old Fredericton boy who collapsed and died on Monday will be held Saturday.

Garrett Blois was found on a sidewalk Monday morning with an autopsy showing he died from a sudden cardiac event.

Blois’s father John Blois spoke with Global News. “There was no warning for this”, says Blois. “There is nothing. he just collapsed and that was it and my little boy is gone”.

A fundraising event will be held in Fredericton to help the family pay for funeral expenses.
