Cicero & Chicago Firefighters Help Family
WGN News, December 24, 2014
Firefighters from Chicago and Cicero make a special delivery for a grieving family.
Miguel Haro, 44, was shot and killed during a robbery in Chicago’s Englewood neighborhood, Sunday night. He was working on rehabbing a vacant home and refused to give up money he had been saving to buy Christmas gifts for his daughters, relatives said.
Chicago firefighters who responded to the scene pooled together resources with union leaders and firefighters in Cicero, where Haro lived. On Tuesday, they delivered money, gift cards, toys, and a tablet for Haro’s two daughters, ages 4 and 10.
“While we know that giving them a tablet and some toys and food won’t replace their father, we hope they’ll be able to sleep a little easier tonight knowing their local firefighters and paramedics are thinking about their loss,” said Tim O’Brien, public relations director for the Chicago Firefighters Union.
Promotion of Lt. Steve Fiore
