Don Lemon's Sister Dies in Accidental Drowning While Fishing”

Always had my back.

The Lemon/Grimes family are in mourning following the death of L'Tanya "Leisa" Lemon Grimes, the sister of CNN anchor Don Lemon, from drowning on Wednesday.

She appears to have tripped and fallen into the water while fishing in the neighborhood pond, authorities said.

According to preliminary reports, there are no indications that there was foul play involved, and the drowning is being considered accidental.

In addition to Lemon's emotional tweet - as a result of his cultural status - the family released an official statement asking the media to provide adequate space as they grieve Leisa's untimely passing. A reasonable request that Lemon's respect as a journalist will undoubtedly make it easier to adhere to.

"Please keep my family in your prayers".

L'Tanya "Leisa" Lemon Grimes, 58, of Denham Springs, La., died after she fell into a pond in a subdivision around 4 p.m. Wednesday, reported the Times-Picayune in New Orleans.

Lemon, who anchors "CNN Tonight with Don Lemon" during weekday prime-time, did not appear in Thursday's show following his sister's death. He wrote: "This lifted my spirits".

Readers of the Daily Mail shared their thoughts and condolences.

Don Lemon attends CNN Heroes Gala 2016 at the American Museum of Natural History on December 11, 2016 in New York City. We love you mom!

"Forget politics; this such a tragic event", another reader added. "Reading this made me want to be nicer to my sister who I'm constantly at odds with; because there may not be a tomorrow for either us and it would be too late to say sorry and make peace".
