Port Washington 9/11 police officer still mentors Nebraska boy after 16 years

Former NYPD Officer Tom Rice spent weeks working at the site of the World Trade Center in the aftermath of the attacks. He would use his breaks to answer letters from children.

One reply he wrote started a friendship that is still going strong nearly 16 years later. He told his story to Amelia Camurati of The Island Now.
