NYPD superheroes ensured two young Brooklyn boys have some holiday cheer this year. The officers, from Patrol Borough Brooklyn North and other Brooklyn precincts, brought presents and smiles to the young brothers. Their father was the victim of a random attack during the summer where due to the result of being hit in the face, he remains in a coma.
The officers also visited local hospitals to bring presents to sick children.
“The families are dealing with illness and hard times. They don’t have the time to do Christmas shopping- we want to bring joy to them this Christmas season,” said Chief Jeffrey Maddrey.
