    CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Students at Charlotte Catholic High School are showing their support for some of their classmates.

    Students held a vigil Thursday night at the school’s football field.

    They prayed for fellow students after two of them were hospitalized.

    One’s brother recently died, and one student is stuck in Brazil after a serious swimming accident.

    “Here at Charlotte Catholic, we consider ourselves a family.  Whenever someone’s in need, we’re always there to support them,” said student McCaela Sullivan.

    “This is powerful everybody getting together, and I want to help our family here.  I want to show them hat we love them, and that we’re sticking by them,” said student Alex Rodrigue.

    One classmate they are praying for is Nick Andrade.  He reportedly broke his neck diving into a lake in Brazil and students are raising money to get him back to the U.S.
