An eight-year-old boy who was pulled from a burning motorhome in Oliver last month has died.

Cody O'Conner was taken off life support on Friday at B.C. Children's Hospital in Vancouver, where he has been since Aug. 28.

O'Connor had undergone several skin grafts and operations since the fire, which destroyed his family's home and left him with second-degree burns to 40 per cent of his body.

His body will be transported back to Penticton for the funeral.

The family does not have insurance and will have set up a support fund to help raise money for burial costs.
