Hundreds gather in memory of man killed in a freak accident

| No Comments

Hundreds gathered Saturday in memory of a Congolese refugee who was killed in a freak car accident days earlier, the Pioneer Press reported.
Medard Ebunga Prosper was killed April 15 when his car blew a tire on the Mendota bridge. As he tried to get free of the vehicle, his foot was caught and the car ran him over, the Herald Globe reported.
Prosper,19, migrated to the U.S. about two years before his accident, fleeing the civil war-torn Congo with two of his brothers. Both of his parents and nine siblings were killed before he left, according to the Pioneer Press.
Friends gathered in memory of Prosper at Word of Grace Baptist Church in Minneapolis on Saturday.
