Celebrating the life of...
Craig Owen
( - 2008)
Craig Owen, 16, from Brymbo, Wrexham
Craig Owen

Did not know Criag personally, but wanted to leave this tribute after hearing this sad story on the local news. Craig was on a family holiday in Carmarthenshire SW Wales, when tradegy struck at Cefn Sidan beach near Burry Port. Craig, who was from Brymbo (Near Wrexham) had attended Ysgol Bryn Alyn School, Gwersyllt. He had recently taken his GCSEs before this summer holiday. Whilst playing in the sand dunes with friends, after digging two large holes downwards, the teenagers decided to link the two holes with a tunnel. It was this, which collapsed onto Craig, despite frantic digging by friends (and the Emergency services who attended), 16 year old Craig was airlifted to Morriston Hospital in Swnsea but could not be saved - dying from asphyxiation. His funeral followed on 12th August at Pentrebychan crematorium where his coffin was draped in a Welsh flag and hundreds of mourners wore Wales rugby shirts to the service. When the exam results were announced, Craig had actually attained outstanding marks, 10 passes, 5 Grade A and 5 Grade A*. Such a shame that a promising future was robbed from this young man. As is often the case, lessons are learned following a tradegdy - when the Inquest was conducted in Llanelli (November 08) the Coroner recommended signs be erected on beaches warning of the dangers of deep digging and tunnels.
