Vigil for young boy who died in horse riding accident

Posted: Updated:

(CBS 8) - Friends and family are mourning the loss of a Bonita boy, killed in a freak horseback-riding accident.

Ten-year-old David Ochoa was riding with family Tuesday afternoon, when his horse got tangled in wires and crushed him.

A vigil was held Wednesday at David's school, Sunnyside Elementary, where dozens of community members released balloons in memory of the bright, happy boy whose future was cut short. Those who knew him say all the would-be fifth grader would want to talk about is horses.

A memorial fund has been set up to help the family:

David Ochoa Memorial Fund

Mission Federal Credit Union
"David Ochoa Benefit Account"
