NY Post reports:
NYPD Officer Artur Kasprzak, 29 — a six-year veteran of Manhattan’s First Precinct — died after saving seven family members, including a 15-month-old boy, stuck in their flooded home on Doty Avenue in South Beach.
He was washed into the basement by a 10-foot tide.
“He was in the basement getting family out when they lost sight of him,” a source said.
His body was found at 7 a.m. yesterday.
In Mendham Township, NJ, two parents driving home with their children, ages 11 and 14, were also crushed by a tree at 7:30 p.m. Monday as they tried to clear a path home.
The parents had gotten out of their truck to remove one tree from their path when a second one fell on them — killing them in front of their children.
