As CBS2’s Weijia Jiang reported, efforts were also underway to help the families of the two fallen heroes.
A 9/11 charity is working to help pay off the mortgages on the homes of the two NYPD officers who were ambushed and killed in Brooklyn.
The foundation made the announcement in Staten Island along with former Mayor Rudy Guiliani and Liu’s widow, Pei Xia Chen.
“We want to help lift them out of some of the despair that they’re in today,” said Chairman Frank Siller.
Chen is feeling a pain that Siller knows all too well. He lost his brother on 9/11.
