Dorman High School announced on Facebook on Monday that one of its students, 15-year-old Sahiyd Thomas-Joyner, died over the weekend while on a church camping trip at Lake Keowee.

According to reports of those who were present at the scene, Sahiyd jumped into the lake to save his 13-year-old brother, who appeared to have gotten caught in a current.

Sahiyd was able to get his brother to shore, but unfortunately he himself didn’t make it out of the lake.

Sahiyd is now being remembered by his classmate and friends as a caring young man who loved to sing and spend time with his family.

A GoFundMe page has been set up to cover funeral expenses.

Sahiyd’s funeral will be held on Monday September 23rd at 11 am at JH Woodward Funeral Home.
