Community Reacts to Deaths of Kids in Fiery Crash
The five children killed in a fiery Florida highway crash on their way to Walt Disney World have been identified along with the two truck drivers who also died. The crash happened Thursday.
The Christian Family Worship Center in Mansura held a vigil to honor the children and pray for their families.
One of the children who was killed in the crash, 13-year-old Cara Descant, was in the 8th grade. Her teacher, Brandie Lee, attends the worship center and put the vigil together.
Her reaction: “She had a very close relationship with God. She would leave little notes of encouragement on my desk; she could tell when I was having a “teacher day,” like when you’re just annoyed. She would say, ‘God’s got you Mrs. Brandi. Look up to God.’ She would sign her name with a little dash and put Cara,” Lee said.
