LONGMEADOW, Mass. (WWLP) – A fundraiser set up for the family of a construction worker who died in an accident in Longmeadow last week has nearly met its $45,000 goal. A GoFundMe account was set up for the family of Davide Nascimento.
Nascimento had been working on a sewer construction project on Hazardville Road in Longmeadow Friday morning, when the trench he was inside filled with water. His body was recovered hours later by firefighters.
As of late Monday afternoon, the account had raised more than $44,000 for the family, mostly from small donations of $25 to $100. The account had been widely shared on social media, including by the Longmeadow Police Department.
Calling hours for Davide Nascimento will be Thursday, August 6 from 4:00 to 7:00 P.M. at the Ludlow Funeral Home. A funeral Mass will be held Friday morning at 10:00 at Our Lady of Fatima Parish in Ludlow, with a private burial to follow.
