Musician Amy Shark has reportedly farewelled a five-year-old fan at his funeral after he died in a boat accident in central Victoria.
Shark, an ARIA award winner, attended the funeral of the little boy known as Liam on Monday and dedicated a song to him, Fairfax Media reports.
The family are understood to be huge fans of Shark’s music.
One person who attended the funeral told Fairfax Media the performance was “absolutely incredible”.
Shark said it was the least she could do for one of her “biggest” fans.
The musician also paid tribute to little Liam on her Instagram account.
“I never got to meet Liam, but I will remember him and his family forever,” she captioned a picture of the boy.
“Rest In Peace sweet boy, may my songs be forever in your dreams.”
Despite wearing a life jacket, he became trapped under the hull and sustained a number of cuts and injuries after he collided with the boat’s propeller.
The boy’s father managed to drag him to the back of the boat and he was able to perform CPR with the assistance of a triple-0 operator.
The air ambulance was called but was turned around after the boy died at the public boat ramp.
Police say the family were regular holidaymakers at Bonnie Doon and were no doubt planning to return for the Christmas break.
A report will now be prepared for the coroner.
