Christmas Survivors Breakfast

NORTHEAST PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- The families of several fallen Philadelphia police officers sat down together Friday for a holiday meal.

The Christmas Survivors Breakfast was hosted by the Fraternal Order of Police at Lodge 5 Headquarters in Northeast Philadelphia.

It is a show of support to the families of officers killed, or wounded, in the line of duty.

Mindy Marynowitz, the wife of a wounded officer said "it's just an overwhelming beautiful event, it's such a comfort to know how much my whole family is thought of and how my husband is never forgotten."

Each of the families who went to the breakfast today also took home gift baskets for the holidays.
