Fund Raising Brisk for Family in Tragedy

(Chesterton, IN) - A Go Fund Me page has exceeded its goal in connection with a 14-year-old Sylis Wilfinger, of Chesterton boy killed by a train last Tuesday.


A $14,000 goal to help the family cover funeral expenses has been steadily outpaced, as this morning the Go Fund Me page stood at more than $28,000 in pledges and donations.


Wilfinger veered around a crossing arm on a bicycle.


He was waiting for a train to pass when struck by another train coming from the opposite direction.  Authorities noted that it appears the boy did not know a second oncoming train was coming.
