How did we miss this one?

Particularly often used for having a childhood friend suddenly die. Truth in Television as it is one of the more common ways for a young child to die, Look Both Ways being the other. A common form of Death By New Bery Medal. Often happens off screen with just a shoe or sandal shown floating in the water.

Can also occur for adults, villains, and other characters. Question though, should the "childhood friend drowns" be it's own separate trope?

Needs a better description.

Up for Grabs

As this is a Death Trope, all Spoilers will be unmarked. Beware.
