Toronto vigil nov 17

Dozens of mourners gathered at a candlelight vigil Saturday for a two-year-old girl who died after being hit by an air conditioner that fell from an apartment window earlier this week.  

Family and community members remembered Crystal Mirogho as a loving and sweet child who loved to laugh.   

Speakers at the vigil thanked supporters for braving Saturday's chilly weather to pay their respects to the toddler's devastated family.  

Crystal's cousin Qasem Afzali said the girl's mother has barely been able to speak since she witnessed the tragedy.  

Slavko Ristich, a personal injury lawyer representing the family, has said Crystal's mother and two siblings had been pushing her in a stroller outside when the air conditioner fell.  

Police have said the unit fell from the eighth floor of a Toronto Community Housing building on the city's east side.
