Thousands gather to remember 15 lives lost in horrific team bus crash

Thousands packed into the home arena of Saskatchewan's Humboldt Broncos junior hockey team, singing, crying, and holding each other as they struggled to cope with a terrible tragedy.

15 people were killed when the team's bus collided with a transport truck on Friday. They had been enroute to a playoff game in Nipawin at the time.

14 other people were injured in the horrific crash. One of those people, Nick Shumlanski, was released from hospital yesterday. He was able to attend the vigil wearing his team jersey.

The entire country is rallying around the community. Here in Niagara the Falls were lit up green and gold last night.

Donations will be collected at tonight's Niagara Ice Dogs game at the Meridian Centre. Fans are also encouraged to sign large banners that will be sent to Humboldt in a show of support.

A Go Fund me page has also been set up in honour of the team. More than $4 million has been donated so far.
