Tragic Accident at Play City Claims the Life of a Young Boy

A devastating tragedy unfolded at Play City, a popular family-friendly indoor party venue in Chula Vista, San Diego, when a small boy named Josiah Toleafoa was struck by a car in the parking lot. Josiah, who was on his way to celebrate his third birthday with other children, tragically lost his life despite the valiant efforts of paramedics.

According to witnesses, Josiah’s mother was beside herself with grief as she watched paramedics desperately try to save her precious son. The 36-year-old driver of the car stayed at the scene and cooperated with authorities. Initial investigations suggest that neither drug nor alcohol use played a role in the collision. The tragic accident remains under investigation, and no arrests have been made.

In the wake of this heart-wrenching incident, Josiah’s family turned to social media to create a GoFundMe page to raise funds for his funeral expenses. Described as a sweet and loving child, Josiah brought immense joy and love to everyone around him. His family believes that he would have made a significant impact on the world had he been given more time.

The Play City owner, deeply moved by the family’s loss, has generously donated $2,000 to support them during this challenging time. Additionally, the landlord has matched this amount, offering further assistance to the grieving family.

Our hearts go out to the Toleafoa family as they navigate through this unimaginable tragedy. They have our deepest sympathies, and we ask everyone to join us in keeping them in our thoughts and prayers. May they find strength, comfort, and solace during this exceptionally difficult time.
