By Tim LAI, Thursday, August 25, 2005, Page A12
A 39-year-old Toronto man who died in hospital this week after a fight with another man has become the city's 47th homicide of the year.
The victim has been identified as Quang NGUYEN. The cause of death was injury to the head.
Police say Mr. NGUYEN was injured at about 3: 50 a.m. last Saturday on 8th Street, near Islington Avenue and Lake Shore Boulevard West, when a man punched and kicked him, causing him to fall and hit his head on the concrete sidewalk.
While the other man fled the scene, Friends of Mr. NGUYEN took him to hospital, where his condition deteriorated. He was then moved to the intensive-care unit at St. Michael's Hospital and put on life support, but he died Monday.
Peter CONSTANTINE, 30, of Toronto is charged with manslaughter.

600 attend boys' funeral
Brothers, 9, and 7, killed in swimming tragedy
By Huang NAILI, Staff Reporter
When the two little golden caskets covered with flowers were lowered into the grave at noon yesterday, Truc LE collapsed to the ground.
She rested her head against a railing surrounding the grave and reached out her right hand as if to touch her sons one more time.
Again and again, she called out the names of her two lost boys, Larry and Calvin, her frail voice almost drowned out by sobbing relatives and Friends.
The two Toronto brothers whose lives were claimed by a family swimming tragedy last Sunday were put to rest side by side at the Holy Cross Catholic Cemetery in Thornhill.
More than 600 people, some of them classmates and their families, crowded into St. Jane Frances Church on Jane St. for the service, held in Vietnamese and English.
Truc LE, 40, sank to her knees right in front of the grave and prayed.
A family member said Truc was asking her sons to bless their brother Anthony, the only survivor of the tragedy at Guelph's Belwood Lake Conservation Area, who is recovering at the Hospital for Sick Children.
Soan Thi NGUYEN, 78, the boys' grandmother who helped raise the children, also threw herself onto the caskets. Family members said she has been crying since the accident and has lost her voice.
Larry, 9, died Sunday after he drowned in the lake. Calvin, 7, died Monday night at Sick Kids. His major organs were donated to help other children live.
Theresa NGUYEN, 9, and her brother, Anh Tuan NGUYEN, 12, listened to the mass in the foyer outside the overflowing chapel. She and the LE brothers attended St. Jane Frances Catholic School.
"I'll always remember him as a funny guy," she said.
"We are making cards for the boys. We painted pictures like two little boys in heaven and we wrote words like 'We miss you' and 'We hope you have a peaceful time in heaven.'"
Mimi CHAU, 45, cried quietly in a corner of the foyer. She doesn't know the family but said she came out of respect.
"I'm one of the Vietnamese boat people who made a long way to have a life here in Canada, just as the boys' father. I came because I feel so sad for the family," said CHAU.
She read the news in a local Vietnamese newspaper while at Sick Kids on Tuesday, where her 15-year-old daughter was receiving a kidney transplant.
Noting Toronto's Vietnamese community isn't that big, CHAU said "whenever something like this happens, everyone would go out to help."
When the priests were sprinkling the two caskets with holy water, Theresa TRAN, a Sunday school teacher at the church, cried out with the boys' aunt, Anh LE.
The three brothers attended TRAN's Vietnamese language class every Sunday and June 5 was the last day before summer vacation.
"That Sunday was the last time I saw them. They are charming boys," TRAN said.
TRAN was preparing a gift her students in the last class.
Because the three boys were always very active and occassionally naughty, she teased them, saying they wouldn't receive anything.
"They all begged, 'Oh, Miss TRAN, please, please give us a gift. We'll be good. We promise to behave in September.'"
TRAN finally gave the three kids a book, a pencil and a little bear.
At the cemetery, Sabrina CARD and Wladimir ROBLERO of Pickering, were special guests of the family. They were at the lake when tragedy struck."I was just fortunate to be there. I was able to grab Anthony and take him to the shore so we could start (cardio-pulmonary resuscitation)."
"We feel sorry, deeply sorry for the family," CARD said. "We were busy doing cardio-pulmonary resuscitation on Anthony without knowing what was happening to Larry and Calvin." They were later found lying under water.
Yesterday, CARD gave the boys' mother, a kiss on the cheek. "I told her she has to stay strong for Anthony."
Anh LE, the boys' aunt who was supervising the children, "is having a very hard time," said a family member.
"The family is learning the lesson the hard way. But we should all learn and teach water safety to (kids).
"The government should bring back swimming lessons to schools," he said.
Another mass will be celebrated in Vietnamese at St. Jane Frances Catholic Church at 5: 30 p.m. today.
The Vietnamese community has set up a trust fund for the family at a Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce branch, transit number 05522, account 2681439. Tax receipts are available.
