    Visiting hours are scheduled at a funeral home for a Vermont man and his 6-year-old daughter who died in a circus tent collapse in Lancaster, New Hampshire.

    Visitors can attend the wake at the Sayles Funeral Home in St. Johnsbury on Monday from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. in memory of 41-year-old Robert Young and his daughter, Annabelle.

    A candlelight vigil has been scheduled for Tuesday at the Concord School in Vermont, where Annabelle went to kindergarten.

    The two were killed when a storm blew through the Lancaster Fairgrounds and brought down a tent as a circus was performing on Monday, Aug. 3. About 50 people were injured.
