Bayshore crash victim honored by friends after being taken off life support | News
Tampa, Florida-- Days after his car sped across the wall on Bayshore Boulevard and plunged into Tampa Bay, the family of 19-year-old Michael Agana made the difficult decision to take him off life support.
That happened at Tampa General Hospital around midnight, around the same time a crowd gathered at the crash scene to hold a vigil in his honor.
On Wednesday, Agana's former band director at H.B. Plant High School, Robert Shoos, spoke to 10 News about Agana, who he considers one of the nicest and hardest working students he's ever taught.
"Mike was an incredible kid. He always was great academically. He was on the hockey team. He was in service clubs. He did a ton of community service," he said. "Whenever we had a volunteer drumline to play for the pediatric cancer foundation or Relay for Life, he was always the first one to sign up."
The Hillsborough County Medical Examiner says Agana's autopsy will be performed tomorrow, though any toxicology results could take weeks to come back.
