PENTICTON - A Penticton family besieged with misfortune is in need of the help of the community.

Six-year-old James McIntosh tragically died on Sept. 15, 2015, when he was struck by a vehicle at the intersection of Channel Parkway and Fairview Road.

The family has just received another blow. James' father Brian succumbed to cancer earlier this week.

Friends have set up a Gofundme page for the surviving family members.
