COOK CO., GA (WALB) -

A family held a vigil Saturday for a teen killed by a train in Cecil earlier this week. 

Jacob Fisher, 19, was killed Wednesday while walking down the tracks. 

His family believes the earphones he had in his ears prevented him from hearing the train. Dozens of friends and family members participated in the vigil. 

They've also set up a GoFundme account for his funeral expenses.
