(Newser) – The 3-year-old grandson of Zimbabwean Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai was found dead in the family pool in Harare on Saturday, the Guardian reports. Sean Tsvangirai and his parents were visiting from Canada for the funeral of Susan Tsvangirai, Sean’s grandmother and Morgan’s wife, killed in a March car accident. “It’s unbelievable,” one Zimbabwean said. “It’s too tragic, too much for one man to take.”
