London Bridge Attack: Canadian Christine Archibald Is 1st Victim Identified

The family wants people to volunteer at or donate to homeless shelters, and to "tell them Chrissy sent you"

The family of the first victim of Saturday's London Bridge attack to be publicly identified is urging people to honor her life by helping the homeless, NBC News reported.

Canadian Christine Archibald, 30, moved to London to be with her fiance and was one of seven people killed in a van-and-stabbing rampage on London Bridge and at nearby Borough Market. More than 21 others remain critical condition, officials said.

"We grieve the loss of our beautiful, loving daughter and sister," a spokesperson for the Archibald family said Sunday. "She would have had no understanding of the callous cruelty that caused her death. Please honor her by making your community a better place. Volunteer your time and labor or donate to a homeless shelter. Tell them Chrissy sent you."

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said he was "heartbroken" by Archibald's death.
