Kapur was injured during an accident in Manhattan on Saturday and was taken to Bellevue Hospital, where she later died, the station reported.
Her colleagues and classmates from Syracuse University remembered her Sunday night.
“This is the nina kapur i met in college: excellent at what she did while wearing a big smile on her face,” Jane Hong wrote on Twitter along with a video of Kapur smiling as a woman walks into her live shot while working for News 12.
“I remember telling her i couldn’t wait to watch her on national news one day… she deserved more. praying for her family and loved ones.”
Journalist Zach Parnes called the Pennsylvania native a “shining light.”
“She made countless sacrifices to make it to New York. Her work won’t be forgotten,” he wrote.
