NEW YORK (CBS 2) – A wake will be held Wednesday evening for the young man who died in a fatal fall after a night out with friends in northern Westchester.

Brendan Frail, 19, was killed Saturday night after plunging 40-feet off the railroad bridge over the Croton Reservoir, now part of a recreation trail.

Investigators said Frail and three friends climbed over a security fence to hang out on the bridge, dangling their legs over the water.

It’s something countless young people have done over the years. “It’s scary to think about what could happen.  Kids think they’re invincible, nothing could happen to them,” said Francesca Gonzales, Yorktown High School Student.

“Anybody would be blessed to have a Brendan Frail as their son,” said family friend Bruce Apar.

Police said Frail apparently lost his balance.

The medical examiner said Frail likely struck his head on the bridge before falling.

His funeral will take place Thursday.
