Neighbors say the death of a 7-year-old Bronx girl who was struck by a falling metal gate was not the first such incident.

Friends and neighbors gathered for a prayer vigil on Banyer Place in Soundview Monday night.

Witnesses say the falling gate broke the young girl's skull on Sunday.

They also claim two other children have been injured in the same way.

Neighbors claim complaints to the building's landlord are being ignored.
