Friends and family of Michael Lumahang are appealing for funds to help pay for his funeral.

The 39-year-old died as he tried to rescue a 12-year-old boy from the Ottawa River on Saturday.

Police say a 24-year-old man also went into the water near the Champlain Bridge. He and the boy returned to shore safely.

The family has set up a memorial Facebook page for Lumahang.
