Woods’ aunt, Dwanda Woods, said he hasn’t shown any improvement and remains in critical condition.
“I wish it would change, but nothing, no activity to the brain or anything right now,” said Dwanda Woods. “So we’re just waiting, day by day, being patient and praying.”
Friends who also attended the vigil prayed for their friend to pull through.
“We here for you Cartie,” said Iyania Curry. “We got you. We love you.”
A GoFundMe has been set up to help with Cartier’s medical expenses.
