Funeral service held for 6-year-old Christian Martinisi, of Cornwall, who was killed in a tragic accident

Posted: Updated:

A Cornwall family is saying farewell to the young boy killed in a tragic accident last week.



Loved ones of 6-year-old Christian Martinisi were seen carrying toys and photos to his funeral service Tuesday morning.



The young boy was killed when a support pillar, called a lally column, somehow fell on top of him inside his family's home.



Martinisi's obituary describes him as an energetic, adorable little boy, who had a smile that could light up a room.



It also mentioned how this summer, Martinisi had gone on his first roller coaster at Lego Land, and how he was supposed to start first grade at Willow Avenue Elementary School this year.
