Wake held for 7-year-old crushed by iron gatePosted: Updated:
Loved ones began saying goodbye to 7-year-old Katy Castoires today after she was crushed to death by an iron gate outside her Bronx home on Sunday.
Castoires' parents say they are still waiting for answers as to why the gate was never secured, even after they made several complaints. The Department of Buildings says the landlord will be getting a violation for failure to maintain it.
Family members say the young girl will be buried in her ballet slippers on Friday at Saint Raymond's Cemetery.
