Touching toddler tribute for deceased NYPD Det. Wilbert Mora

Hundreds attend NYPD Officer Wilbert Mora’s funeral

Fox News’ Bryan Llenas reports on the funeral for Officer Mora who was killed in an ambush in Harlem.

Some pictures capture a story in ways that words can’t always accomplish.

One of the sweetest and most poignant photos to emerge from the funeral on Wednesday in Manhattan held for deceased NYPD Detective Wilbert Mora is shown here.

Two toddlers on wheels are shown paying their respects to fallen Officer Mora in midtown Manhattan. 

Det. Mora died after suffering gunshot wounds during a 911 call in Harlem last month. His partner, Det. Jason Rivera, also perished after the same incident.

Mora’s family emigrated to the U.S. from the Dominican Republican when he was only seven years old. He was to be buried on Wednesday afternoon in Woodside, Queens.

Thousands of law enforcement officers created what officials called an “ocean of blue” outside St. Patrick’s Cathedral last week for Rivera’s funeral — and they did the same on Wednesday, Feb. 2, for Mora’s funeral as well.

Check out these additional photos taken on Wed., Feb. 2, 2022, as thousands came out to pay their respects, share their anguish, pray, and let the family know in their own way that others were thinking of them and hurting with them in their time of deep sorrow.
