Boy, 8, Killed In Trailer Accident To Be Remembered At Vigil

A central Michigan community is remembering an 8-year-old boy who died after falling from a trailer carrying children during Halloween trick-or-treating.

WZZM-TV reports that a candlelight vigil for Brady James Sexton was scheduled to start at 6 p.m. Sunday along Stanton's E. Main Street.

Sexton died Wednesday at a local hospital after he fell from a trailer and was run over as it was being pulled by a small farm tractor.

His death is being investigated as an accident. Witnesses said the tractor was moving slowly when Sexton fell in the nearby town of Sheridan, about 115 miles (186 kilometers) northwest of Detroit.

Sexton's funeral was scheduled for Monday at the Central Montcalm High School gymnasium in Stanton. He's survived by his parents and two sisters.
