Candlelight vigil honors victim of tent collapse in St. Louis

ST. LOUIS (AP) — The man killed when a party tent collapsed outside a St. Louis sports bar last weekend is remembered in a hushed candlelight vigil.

KMOX Radio ( ) reports that the vigil Wednesday night outside Kilroy’s Sports Bar honored 58-year-old Alfred Goodman of Waterloo, Ill. He was among many Cardinals fans who were under a tent at Kilroy’s on Saturday following the team’s 7-3 win over Milwaukee.

A storm came through with a strong gust of wind that knocked over the tent. About 100 people were hurt. Goodman was the only person killed.

Kilroy’s has remained closed since the incident and the owners say they’re not sure when it might reopen.
