Malaysian influencer Jasmine Yong shared that her 2-year-old son, Enzo, tragically died after accidentally drowning.

“Our baby of Enzo has gone up to be a happy little angel 👼🏻 It’s no longer painful or hard,” Yong wrote in Chinese on Saturday, May 18, via Instagram alongside a slideshow from Enzo’s memorial service. “Thank you all for your prayers and blessings.”

Yong shared that she and her family were on vacation for Mother’s Day weekend. She and husband Lim Kong Wang snuggled their son after he got tired from drinking milk, like he normally does.

The internet personality explained that she and Kong Wang ended up falling asleep alongside their toddler. However, when the parents woke up they noticed Enzo was missing and the “locked door” for the pool had been opened. They found Enzo inside and he was unresponsive. Yong performed “emergency CPR” while Kong Wang went to look for help since the hotel had a “poor” phone network leaving them unable to call for assistance.

“We rushed to the hotel lobby with the baby and asked the hotel staff to help call [an] ambulance and help do first aid until the ambulance arrived,” she penned. “Half an hour after being sent to the hospital for rescue, the baby finally recovered his heartbeat but [was] still in a coma.”

Yong shared that Enzo died on Friday, May 17, after his heart “stopped” beating.

“No one wants this accident to happen,” her post continued. “Please let baby Enzo leave in peace, thank you.”

Yong also shared a series of clips from Enzo’s memorial service. In honor of their little one, attendees released multi-colored balloons into the sky. One picture featured Enzo’s memorial display which included a photo of the toddler in a flower frame. The table featured balloons and a series of snacks including yogurt drinks, muffins, oranges, bananas and more.
