BUFFALO, NY (WKBW) -- Family and friends gathered in front of the Black Rock home of Diquan Warren on Tuesday night to remember a boy they called kind, respectful and fun.

"My brother didn't know how to swim at all, but he chose to save another life over his," Diquan's sister told a crowd of mourners who lit candles and prayed.

Quan, as his friends called him, jumped into an inlet along the Niagara River on Monday to save Ashely Figueroa, 12, who was having trouble staying above water.
