NEW YORK (PIX11) — Classmates of Alfa Barrie, the 11-year-old boy pulled from the Hudson River on Saturday, remembered their friend and fellow student at a vigil in Harlem on Tuesday.

It was a rough day at the charter school where Barrie attended classes. Grief counselors were on call as the school held a vigil to honor the young boy’s life.

Barrie and Garret Warren,13, went missing on May 12. A third boy told police the two boys had been roughhousing near the Harlem River when Warren pushed Barrie and both boys fell into the water, police sources said.

Warren’s body was pulled from the Harlem River on Thursday.

As both families deal with their grief, teachers, classmates, and students dealt with the gap left behind by 11-year-old Barrie.
