PICTURES: 300 at candlelight vigil for brothers who died in Tampines accident

SOME 300 people turned up for a candlelight vigil tonight at the spot in Tampines where two brothers were killed in a horrific accident last week. Nigel Yap, 13, and his brother Donavan, seven, were on their way home on a bicycle when they were hit by a cement mixer truck last Monday evening. Led by MP for Tampines, Mr Baey Yam Keng, the crowd held candles and walked from a nearby block to the junction of Tampines Avenue 9 and Tampines Street 45 at about 8pm. Many took a moment, with their heads bowed, to remember the brothers. They later lined the candles along an adjacent grass patch. The boys' parents were not present although a few of their relatives were there to represent the family. Speaking to the media, Mr Baey said the family is very grateful for the public's outpouring of support.
