September 30th, 2015 · No Comments

A vigil to honor the five international students who died in last week’s bus accident on the Aurora bridge will be held at 6 p.m. at North Seattle College.

In a post to the community, college president Warren Brown wrote:

To honor the five students we lost and to support the students and staff still recovering from their injuries following the Aurora Bridge accident, North Seattle College and Student Leadership invite you to a vigil at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 30. The vigil will be held in the North Seattle College courtyard and is open to the community.

The five students were the only deaths from the crash, with a Ride the Ducks vehicle. “Nine patients remained hospitalized Tuesday at Harborview Medical Center, with eight listed in satisfactory, and one in serious condition and in intensive care, a hospital spokeswoman said. Two other patients were in satisfactory condition at UW Medical Center,” according to The Seattle Times.

For more information on what the college is doing to help students and staff this week, and for a fundraiser, go to the president’s message.
