Sad news from today’s NY Daily News. Brooklyn Heights resident Alexandra Vitale, 3, drowned Tuesday after the boat she was riding on capsized in Long Island Sound:
New York Daily News: Brooklyn Girl…: “She was a beautiful, engaging little girl,” said Arthur Aidala, a close friend of Alexandra’s parents, Michael and Andrea Vitale, who live in Brooklyn Heights.
“She was out sailing before. I do know she knew how to swim. She was wearing a life preserver. It was just a tragic accident.”
The girl, who has a younger brother, Lucas, was spending the summer at the family’s vacation home in Westport, Conn.
The paper reports that the funeral will be held at 10am on Friday at Quaker Meeting Hall, 110 Schermerhorn Street.
The entire BHB Community extends it condolences to the family. You’re in our thoughts and prayers.
