Filipina victim speaks out after hate-filled attack in Queens

There was a flood of tears and relief when Eyewitness News reporter Lucy Yang told the victim that two of her attackers are now under arrest for assault as a hate crime.

Last Thursday began with dim sum with relatives. After lunch, Cecille Lai and her son Kyle got a lift to the 7 train at Junction Boulevard and Roosevelt Avenue in Corona.

As they got out of the car, they told Lucy Yang that the driver behind them honked aggressively even though the light was red. After that came the anti-Asian slurs directed at the Filipino mother and son.

In the end, the 44-year-old mother suffered a concussion, scratches on her eye, and bruising on her body. Her son suffered a skull fracture. He will need an MRI to make sure there was no bleeding in his brain.
