Sydney, N.S. -
A seven-year-old Cape Breton boy whose tragic ordeal touched the hearts of many Canadians will be buried Monday.
James Delorey captured national attention when he followed his dog, Chance, into a wooded area near his South Bar home last week.
The dog returned home two days after the pair wandered out and searchers were able to trace his prints to near where the boy was eventually found.
James was not wearing winter clothes and was found huddled in a thick spruce stand.
He was airlifted to hospital in Halifax where he died several hours later.
His funeral is Monday at 2 p.m. at Holy Redeemer Church in Whitney Pier.
