In 2001, the New York Port Authority needed help coping with the aftermath of 9/11, and law enforcement responded. Friday, it was New York's turn to lend a helping hand.
Two Port Authority officers flew to Hancock County. They took a helicopter ride over the area's hurricane debris, and then they made a special check presentation. The New York Port Authority donated more than $122,000 to Hancock County's first responders.
"We did this because we didn't forget what happened when law enforcement responded to my organization in 9/11," Gus Danese with the New York Port Authority said. "They were there in my time of need, and now it's my turn to step up to the plate."
