WEST BLOOMFIELD, Mich. (WJBK) -

A second child has died following a boating accident Sunday on Sylvan Lake.

Six-year-old Gabrielle Mansour lost her life Monday at Royal Oak Beaumont Hospital. Her brother, eleven-year-old Alexander Mansour, died from his injuries on Sunday.

Another sibling, ten-year-old Adriana Mansour, remains in critical condition.

Authorities said the children were on a tube being pulled by a jet ski when a boat hit the tube and the victims. The Oakland County Sheriff's Office is investigating the accident and has said no alcohol was involved.

There was a large turnout at a vigil Monday night at St. Thomas Chaldean Catholic Church in West Bloomfield.

"The family would like to remain in privacy, but they would like us to pray for them at all times," said seminarian Perrin Atisha.

The victims are from West Bloomfield.
