These words, who are they for? The young man’s family and friends? Members of the forum? Myself? Too soon, too soon.

This is awful news and I am so sad for this young man's family and friends. 'Journey on Fellow Pilgrim and kept a vigil over those who walk the path behind you'.

Sadly, a young man was caught in the current of the river in downtown Ourense while cooling off in the water. An earlier article specified that he was a pilgrim on his way to Santiago de Compostela. This was shared earlier on the CSJ Facebook page.

Sad news indeed. I was there in May and know how close he was to the end and how far he had likely come
