Lisa Crane died in an accidental crane school shooting on October 6, 2019.
The cause of death is unknown at this time.
She is survived by her father Bob Crane, her younger sister Rachael Crane, brother John, and stepbrother Tim Crane.
Lisa was a fifth grader at Cranbrook Middle School in the Bronx.
She had been a member of the school’s team mascot team.
Lisa had worked in the building for about a year before the incident.
She was last seen alive by her family after her sister’s car pulled up to Cranbrook and the driver, Michael Schumacher, jumped out.
The driver of the car fled, but was arrested in Brooklyn and taken to the police station.
Lisa’s parents are in New York City to attend their daughter’s funeral.
Lisa is survived as well by her stepbrother, Tim, and by her sister, Rachae.
The funeral will be held on Sunday, October 13 at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine in Harlem, according to a statement released by the family.
“Lisa and her family are devastated by the news of her tragic passing, but we are grateful for the outpouring of support that we’ve received from all over the world and especially our own community,” Lisa’s family said.
Cranbrook Middle is a middle school in the city’s South Bronx.
Lisa and her father attended the school for about two years before Lisa’s death.
The school is in a community of about 7,000 people on the Upper East Side.
In 2018, a 17-year-old boy was killed in a crane school accident in the same neighborhood.
A man and a woman were charged with murder in that shooting, and the victim’s name was not released.
