|   City News

Mayor Domenic J. Sarno states, “I have spoken to the mother of the children who were seriously harmed by an unprovoked and despicable attack put forth by Victor Nieves to, first of all, offer my support, thoughts, prayers and encouragement to her and her family. Also, my sympathy to the loss of the children’s grandmother, Kim Fairbanks.”

“Simply put, what would possess someone to do such a hideous crime to an innocent hardworking family?” Mayor Sarno added.  “I also want to commend our Springfield Police Department and AMR for their heroic efforts they put forth to get the children down to Baystate Medical Center immediately in order to save their lives.  I ask our caring community of Springfield to keep this family in their thoughts and prayers and be prepared to once again aid them in their time of need.”
