MOUNT PLEASANT, N. Y. -- While the somber crowd honored the six victims of last year's Metro-North train crash near Valhalla, many took comfort in how the community came together to support each other, according to a lohud.com report.

The Wednesday night service, which drew about 25 people to Mount Pleasant council chambers, including town leaders, first responders and witnesses, marked one year since the Metro-North train crashed with an SUV, killing six people. Bells rang six times, and Paul Oliva, Mount Pleasant's police chief, read the name of each of the six victims, said lohud.com.

State Sen. Terrence Murphy, a Yorktown Republican, said the vigil was also a chance to honor those first responders as well as those from the community and train passengers who came out to help, reported lohud.com.
