STRONGSVILLE, OH (WOIO) - A family member says a pair of Ariana Grande's backup dancers from Ohio are safe after a deadly incident at Manchester Arena.

The dancers, Brian and Scott Nicholson, are from Strongsville. They graduated from Strongsville High School and the University of Akron.

In a Facebook post, a family member of the Nicholsons said the two checked in with their mother and are safe. The family member asked people to pray for the victims of the attack.
