Family of Boy Who Died in Bike Accident Asking for Help with Funeral

FONTANA, Calif. – The family of the Fontana boy killed in a bicycle accident is reaching out for help to give him the proper funeral.

On Sunday, March 31, 2019, at around 3:00 p.m., 11-year-old Luis Enrique Villalpando was riding his bicycle at the apartment complex in the 9200 block of Citrus where he lived. He collided with a tire from a bicycle in front of him, hit the handlebars, then fell to the ground. His mother tried to take him to the hospital but on her way she called for medical aid. Luis was rushed to the hospital where he died soon after as a result of his injuries. “Neither child was wearing a helmet at the time of the collision but it does not appear to be a factor in his injuries,” Fontana Police said

Luis’ cousin is raising funds for his funeral and is asking for help for the young Citrus Elementary School student. “He was a very great cousin with a big heart,” Alex Dominguez Villalpando said on the Go Fund Me memorial account.  “He loved to play Fortnite and exercise with me. His parents and all his family are in shock by his sudden death. We all have our hearts broken and in pain for this tragic tragedy.”

Alex said that he received a call telling him about the accident causing the family to go to the hospital. “At the hospital we got the horrible news that doctors could not save him because the impact to his chest was severe.”

Anyone who would like to help with the cost of the burial for Luis can do so through the Go Fund Me account set up.
