Christopher Chester was walking with his father, William Chester, to bring cookies to a neighborhood friend when he collapsed.

William Chester immediately called an ambulance and tried to revive him.

Sharon Melanson, Christopher’s mother, said an enlarged heart condition is what has led to the boy’s death.

The family is recovering after a heart-wrenching and sudden loss and the community has come to their aid with a GoFundMe page.

The page,set up just two days ago, has already reached $20,000 for the family and funeral services.
