Nicholas Toledo was 78 years old.

Nicolás Toledo was not very convinced about going to see the Monday morning Independence Day parade in Highland Park.

The 78-year-old Mexican needed a walker to walk and knew it would be difficult for him to navigate the crowded sidewalks in that city north of Chicago.

His family, however, I didn’t want to leave him home alone. They were all going to attend and it was a good opportunity to spend a day together.

There were 15 of the family and they chose a good place to see the parade in the center of Highland Park.
