A Hudson Valley community is coming together to mourn the sudden loss of a 13-year-old boy.
Mark Anthony Giordano died Sunday after his electric bike went over the edge of the Metro-North parking garage near the Harrison train station.
Officials are calling it a tragic accident.
A prayer service was held Wednesday evening at 6 p.m. at St. Gregory the Great Church on Halstead Avenue in Harrison.
His classmates say they are in shock.
"He brightened up the day, he had jokes, was funny," Noah Martinez said.
Giordano's teammates tell News 12 he achieved so much in such a short period of time.
"He had the most potential out of everyone in the whole grade. He was on varsity for football and a really good wrestler," Gabriel Amaril said.
Giordano is being remembered as a stand-out wrestler, a loving teammate and a kind brother whose life was cut short in a rare kind of accident.
Emergency officials say Giordano was riding his electric bike with some other people on top of the Metro-North parking garage at the Harrison train station Sunday evening. At one point, officials say he lost control and went over the side of the structure, dropping five stories.
A wake will take place Thursday from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. at McMahon, Lyon and Hartnett Funeral home in White Plains. Giordano's funeral will be held on Friday at 11 a.m. at St. Gregory the Great Church.
A Go Fund Me page has been created to help his family during this difficult time.
