Fifteen years after the fall of New York’s famed twin towers, the World Trade Center, victims continue to fall due to illnesses contracted as a result of the fallout from the debris and the time spent doing recovery efforts by first responders at the “pile.”  The pile was the debris field created from the rubble of the fallen towers.  One such victim is New York City Police Department (NYPD) Deputy Chief Steven Bonano, who passed away January 17, 2015, due to a cancerous blood disorder.

For further reading on Deputy Chief Bonano’s heroic life and tragic end, please read the following article published by El Diario NY online, serving New York’s Latin community: El Diario NY.
