NEW YORK (CBS 2) – Thousands gathered on Saturday for the final farewell of a New Jersey police officer who died on the job.

People turned out to pay their respects to Teaneck Police Officer John Abraham.

Abraham was working a double shift early on Oct. 25 when his patrol car slammed into a telephone pole outside police headquarters.

The crash happened just hours after Abraham saved a man’s life at a local restaurant.
