On April 12, Lashanda Armstrong drove a van containing her four children into the Hudson River. La’Shaun Armstrong, 10, managed to escape. He was the only survivor.
Now, Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis is helping La’Shaun.
According to the Associated Press, Lewis has gone bowling with La’Shaun, and Lewis said La’Shaun needs mentoring from a father figure. His biological father is in prison.
La’Shaun was invited to Manhattan Saturday night for a United Athletes Foundation fundraiser. Lewis is vice-chairman of the organization, and former NFL cornerback Reggie Howard serves as the group’s president.
Earlier this week, Howard took La’Shaun shopping for a new suit. A portion of the money raised on Saturday night will help provide him with mentoring, counseling, and tutoring.
