Fence that killed Soundview girl taken down

The property owner has removed the iron fence that crushed a 7-year-old girl to death on Sunday.

As the memorial grows for Keiry Castoire, neighbors say the building?s landlord did nothing about the fence, despite their complaints that it was unstable. Castoire was killed when the gate tipped over onto her body as she played nearby.

News 12 The Bronx has reached out to the building's landlord for comment, but hasn't heard back yet.
