FT. LAUDERDALE (CBSMiami) – A candle light vigil will be held Sunday evening to remember three people who died when an SUV plunged into a lake off I-95 last week.

Thirty seven year old Nadege Theodore, her 15-year old daughter Lyn and nephew Guivens Daverman, 16, were killed when Theodore’s SUV careened into a lake south of Hillsboro Boulevard after it was involved in a three vehicle crash on the highway Wednesday evening around 10 p.m.

Rescue divers pulled Theodore, Daverman and Sandalie Jean-Baptiste from the water. Two were found outside the SUV, while the third was inside; all were in cardiac arrest.

The Florida Highway Patrol said they thought they had gotten everyone out, but someone in the family alerted them that was not the case.

“Once we made next of kin notification, one of the family members notified us that there was possibly a fourth person in the car,” said Florida Highway Patrol spokesman Sgt. Mark Wysocky.

Divers went back out to the lake and pulled Lyn’s body from the water Thursday morning.

Jean-Baptiste remains in critical condition at Broward Health North.

Family members said Nadege Theodore had just picked the others up at the Boca Town Center Mall and was on the way home to Pompano Beach when the accident happened.

Sunday’s vigil will be at the Pompano Community Park, 2001 NE 10th Street, at 6 p.m.
