Who is Aryan Gonia?

A “devastated” family has paid tribute to a “very loving” 13-year-old boy who drowned yesterday while cooling off in the river with his school friends in Cardiff.

Tragic Aryan Ghoniya was found dead in the Taff River in Whitchurch at around 5.45pm on Tuesday, in a body of water where children often frolicked around in the heat.

Police, firefighters and a helicopter were involved in a “thorough search” an hour earlier when he was reported missing.

His family said today that he was called the “Little Professor” because of his mathematical talent.


A statement from the family read: “Aryan was our ‘little teacher’, excellent at maths and well-rounded academically. He was very caring, warm in character and loved by all who knew him.

“We will never miss him one day and he will always be in our hearts.


“The family is devastated by the tragic loss of the Aryans, but we are touched by the way the community, including the police and emergency services, has been working hard to support us.”

The family also thanked the accident and emergency department at the University of Wales Hospital, where doctors tried in vain to save the popular teenager.

Today, Aryan’s family and friends left balloons, tributes and flowers under a bridge over the Taff River.

“You never know when the last time you saw a place or a person was,” said one tribute at the scene. You will always have a place in our hearts.

Another said: “You will be missed so much by all, you always put a smile on our faces and you will always be in our hearts.”

“The sirens kept going and I knew right away that they were looking for someone,” said Samantha Camilleri, who lived near the scene of the tragedy. The helicopter landed very close.

“Everyone here knows each other and it’s going to be a huge shock to the community. So do those poor parents, it’s absolutely heartbreaking.
