NYPD Officer Miosotis Familia Remembered As a Hero
Officer Familia, who was ambushed and killed last week while sitting in a mobile command unit in the Bronx, was posthumously promoted to detective first-grade Tuesday as thousands remembered her as a hero who loved life.
As CBS2’s Hazel Sanchez reported, the somber sound of a life lost echoed along the Grand Concourse as an impressive sea of blue brought the normally busy thoroughfare to a standstill.
