HUNTINGTON, WV (WOWK)—Members of the Guyandotte community are planning a candlelight vigil on Wednesday for a 12-year-old boy who died last Saturday.
Christian Weaver had been swimming with friends where the Ohio and Guyandotte Rivers meet.
His body was pulled from the water after several hours of searching.
Melanie Wray is organizing the vigil. She says the kids in the neighborhood approached her about doing something to help Christian’s family.
The vigil will be at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday night across from the WFW post on Main St. in Guyandotte.
