SAN DIEGO (AP) -- Three generations of the same family were lost when a 13-year-old boy, his mother and grandmother were killed in Sunday's tour bus crash outside a California ski resort.
The boy's aunt, Luz Garcia, told The Associated Press on Tuesday that she believes Victor Cabrera-Garcia went to see the snow with his mother and grandmother to celebrate his Jan. 13 birthday.
Garcia says all were members of her ex-husband's family.
She says the boy lived with his 40-year-old mother, Elvira Garcia, and his 61-year-old grandmother, Maria Guadalupe Olivas, in San Diego.
She says her children are so saddened by the deaths of their grandmother, aunt and cousin, that they have not left their home since they learned of the accident.
The family members account for three of the seven passengers killed.
