GARY, Ind. -- A teacher of an 8-year-old Gary boy who drowned with his 9-year-old brother in a water-filled pit has started a fund to help their family pay for their funerals.

Elizabeth Renta tells The Times of Munster she decided to start the fund at Chase Bank in Gary after learning the family of 8-year-old Terrion Smith and 9-year-old Donel Smith could not afford a service for the boys until next month.
