Friday Afternoon Memorial Planned for 6-year old Traffic Accident Victim Amar Diarrassouba
On February 28, 2014 at approximately 2:30pm, the students and staff of PS 155 will hold a brief remembrance in honor of 6-year old Amar Diarrassouba at the intersection of East 117th Street and First Avenue in East Harlem. Amar was killed there one year ago by a tractor trailer truck.
All are invited to attend to remember this bright, energetic young boy, as balloons are released in loving memory.
His parents, Sidiki and Meichata Diarrassouba dearly hope that the legislation introduced last year in the New York State Senate requiring guards on truck wheels, will be finally be approved.
