Loudoun Boy, 6, Drowns During End-of-Year School Party

Paul X. Wetshtein, son of Paul and Jennifer Wetshtein of Leesburg, VA, died Friday after he fell into a pool and was found unconscious. He was 6 years old.

"Paulie" was in my daughter, Sophie's, class at Belmont Station Elementary School. They had a beautiful bond. She calls Paulie her little brother. They are both Special Needs - Special being the operative word. Paulie is much beloved by his teachers and the administration at Belmont. My heart breaks for his parents and family. My prayers for their strength to endure this tragedy and that the Love that surrounded Paulie here on earth will be a comfort to them through this. We will miss you, Paulie. Love, Sophie and Jo
