Park Dedicated for Explosion Victim

By  | 

Two years after an explosion at a Texas A&M apartment complex, a park will be dedicated in memory of a 4-year-old killed.

A marker naming Lamiya Zahin Memorial Park will be unveiled during a ceremony at 10 a.m. Wednesday morning at the University Apartments' playground.

Following the dedication, a reception will be held at the community center.

Lamiya, the daughter of graduate student Saquib Ejaz, died as a result of injuries sustained in the July 31, 2004 explosion and fire.

Her 62-year-old grandmother, Rabeya Chaudhury, also died.

The State Fire Marshal's Office ruled the explosion was caused by leaking natural gas that entered the building through the apartment's ventilation system.

The family has filed a civil suit.
