Ohio parents, 4 daughters in crash laid to rest

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — A husband and wife and their four daughters killed in an Ohio car crash involving a police officer have been laid to rest.

The funeral of the six family members came Saturday evening after regular prayers at the Noor Islamic Cultural Center just outside of Columbus.

The crash killed 39-year-old Eid Badi Shahad and his wife, 31-year-old Entisar Hameed. Their four daughters ranged in age from 2 to 16 years old.

They're survived by four sons, ages 5 to 17, and Shahad's mother.

Of them, the Columbus Dispatch reports (http://bit.ly/17BQYdM) that only the oldest son could bear to attend the funeral.

He was surrounded by hundreds of supporters.

The family was buried in five simple caskets, with Hameed sharing one with her 2-year-old daughter.

The officer survived the Friday crash.
