Funerals set for victims of Hudson River tragedy

Funeral services for the young Newburgh mother and three of her children killed Tuesday night after a plunge into the Hudson River have been set for Thursday.

Loved ones say the Mass will be held at First Baptist Church in Spring Valley, where the family had been attending church for years. There they will say their final farewells to La'Shanda Armstrong, 25, her 5-year-old and 2-year-old sons, and her 11-month-old daughter.

The church is also accepting donations for the family and Armstrong's 10-year-old son La'Shaun, who was the sole survivor of the incident.
