Fundraiser set up to help pay for Far Rockaway girl’s funeral expenses


Queens leaders are urging their constituents to support a fundraising effort for the family of the 10-year-old girl who was tragically struck and killed by a motorist in Far Rockaway last week.

Davina Afokoba was walking home from school with her two siblings last Wednesday on Beach Channel Drive near Dix Avenue when a black Mazda CX9 SUV jumped the curb, killing her and injuring a 32-year-old woman as it smashed into a vacant car wash.
