Vigil held honors UA student killed in soccer accident

TUSCALOOSA, AL (WBRC) - A vigil was held Wednesday night for a University of Alabama student killed in a soccer accident.

"Everybody's thinking but nobody wants to say it why God. Where's Jesus? Where's God at right now," said a friend of Allie Brodie.

The big question asked at the vigil was why didn't Allie pull through from that coma she fell into after a ball hit her head at a soccer game?

"It was one of the most heartbreaking things, that was the worst phone call I've ever gotten," said Hannah Davis Allie's sorority sister.

Friends of Brodie said she would want them to trust God's will.

"She would quote Hebrews 13-8, She would say Jesus is the same yesterday, as today," said a friend of Brodie.

A message Allie's Christian sorority sisters of Alpha Delta Chi want people to remember during her loss.

"When Allie walked in a room she just lit up the room, she just had a brightness and energy about her," said Davis.

"She's only been on campus for a couple of months, but she was able to touch so many lives," said MyChale Cooper Allie's sorority's sister.

The big crowd of people who showed up for Allie speaks for itself.

"The love that she had for people would just shine through.

This is what it is it's a celebration of life to be able to remember her and to remember the legacy she's past in," said Cooper.

Although her sorority sisters are staying faithful, not having her here is still very painful.

"It still doesn't feel real to any of us but we're going to push through," said Davis.

Brodie's family started a scholarship fund in her name.
