LOS ANGELES, Ca. (WJW) –NBA legend Shaquille O’Neal is making sure a family in Louisiana doesn’t have to worry about the burial expenses for their child who died in a car accident.
According to TMZ, 11-year-old Keshon Batiste was one of two boys killed in the crash. The other victim was identified as 12-year-old Trayvon Alexander. They were in the back seat of a vehicle when the driver reportedly ran a stop sign and struck a ditch and then a tree.
Trayvon’s family was able to cover his burial, however, Keshon’s was unable to come up with all of the money needed and started a GoFundMe for assistance. Once Shaq heard about the story, he immediately offered to help pay the difference.
Both boys were laid to rest on Saturday.
