Red balloons fly in honor of teen killed in accident

MANSFIELD, Mass. (WPRI) — Red balloons filled the sky Tuesday in honor of a teenager who died in a tragic accident.

Funeral services were held in Mansfield for 13-year-old Shane Farrell.

The Qualters Middle School student was struck by a school bus last Wednesday after falling off his bike in the area of East Street.

Red was Farrell’s favorite color, so members of the community flew red balloons to remember him and show support for his family.
