LONDON, Ont. — Addison Hall, the six-year-old girl who died last weekend after a car smashed through the front doors of Costco, has helped save the lives of four people who needed organ transplants.

“Even with the tragedy and how everybody is just reeling from this, there are four families that did benefit,” said family friend and former mayor Anne Marie DeCicco-Best. “It’s probably the only solace you can take from a tragedy like this.

“Her life is continuing to have an impact on others.”

That was evident Wednesday night when thousands of people in this southwestern Ontario city attended a candlelight vigil in support of Hall’s family.

Addison’s three-year-old sister Miah remains in hospital in fair condition, as does the girls’ mom, Danah McKinnon Bozek. Their infant sibling — delivered by emergency C-section last Friday — has been listed in critical condition since birth.

The family was leaving Costco last Friday when a 65-year-old woman driving a red Monte Carlo plowed through the glass doors in reverse.
