PETERSBURG, Va. -- A Petersburg family held a vigil for a 15-year-old boy, who was recently hit and killed by a train. The vigil for Henry De la Cruz was held at the Sacred Heart Catholic Church. Police said De la Cruz was hit by the train Tuesday morning in the 2300 block of Buckner Street in Petersburg. The victim’s cousin, Sorina Montoa , said the family are still trying to come to grips with their loss.
“I still can't believe it. I’m holding on to hope that he will walk inside the house, or he will text me asking where we are at, I can't believe it,” Montoa said.
