BRADFORD WEST GWILLIMBURY, Ont. — A vigil planned for a 15-year-old girl who died in freak accident on the soccer pitch was cut short Friday as severe thunderstorms rolled through the area.

As a memorial grows for Jaime Palm, questions remain about who is responsible for the fields and the nets.

Palm, of Newmarket, Ont., was killed Wednesday after a soccer net with a heavy metal frame toppled, trapping her. The girl’s 15-year-old friend, who police say did not witness the accident, called 911.

She was rushed to hospital but succumbed to her injuries.

At the Portuguese Cultural Centre in Bradford, Ont., where the soccer field is located, the gates remained open for anyone who wanted to place flowers, teddy bears or messages at the site.

Tom Graham, the Town of Bradford West Gwillimbury's director of leisure services, said the centre owns both the nets and the land, and said the only arrangement in place is for the town to cut the grass once a week so the local soccer club could use part of the field.

He called it a "temporary agreement."
