BX native killed in Indiana State Fair stage collapse

THE BRONX - Friends of 29-year-old Christina Santiago gathered in Wakefield today to remember her after she was killed during Saturday's stage collapse at the Indiana State Fair.

Five people were killed and dozens were injured when the stage rigging collapsed during extremely high winds at a concert at the state fair.

Santiago originally grew up in The Bronx, but moved to Chicago in the mid 2000s.

Friends say they are trying to remember the good times with her because that's how she would have wanted to be remembered.
