THE BRONX - Family and friends are mourning the loss of a Bronx woman killed when a part of the stage collapsed last Saturday at the Indiana State Fair.

Christina Santiago, 29, was one of five people killed when a wind gust of nearly 70 mph knocked down a giant stage, which fell on people near the front of the crowd. The stage had been set up for the band Sugarland to play.

A wake for Santiago will be held tomorrow and a funeral is expected to be held Friday.
