Vigil canceled for 2-year-old boy, Denim McLean, killed in East Flatbush crash that hurt 12
BROOKLYN - A candlelight vigil that was planned for the 2-year-old boy who died after a car jumped a curb in East Flatbush has been canceled.
Denim McLean passed away last Thursday at Kings County Hospital after being seriously hurt while waiting at a bus stop on Utica and Church avenues the previous Saturday. A total of 12 people were injured in the crash, including the boy's mother, Wendy, who remains hospitalized.
Organizers say the boy's grandmother did not want a public prayer service, so they called the vigil off.
