A grandma who was hit in the head near San Francisco's Chinatown on Mother's Day died on Friday. Her family removed life support after the 77-year-old fell several days after being attacked.

Her granddaughter hopes the community can help find her grandmother's attacker.


"I hope everyone's able to collectively gather as a community as one, to help my grandma, find the person that attacked her and the person that helped her so that we can find this person as soon as possible so my grandma can rest in peace," granddaughter Connie Ho said.

Police continue to comb through surveillance videos to try and gather more information.
