Rider who fell from float dies

The Mystic Krewe of Apollo posted on their Facebook page Tuesday that Quinn Dejean, the rider who fell off the top level of a float as it was near Johnston Street and Whittington Drive, has died.  Dejean was a rider in the Friday Night Parade on February 5, 2016 in Lafayette.  The post goes on to say that the public will be made aware of funeral arrangements once they are completed.

The Mystic Krewe of Apollo has set up a GoFundMe medical/memorial account for Dejean with all the money raised going directly towards expenses associated with medical, rehabilitation costs, and loss of work.
