Vigil held in Holly Park for Christine Svanemyr 

A vigil was held in Holly Park in Bernal Heights on Thursday for Christine Svanemyr who died last month after being struck by a San Francisco Recreation and Parks vehicle driving through the park. Friends, relatives, and supporters gathered to remember Christine but also to demand safeguards to prevent this sort of incident from occurring again.
