Engine 53 Bench Honors Fallen Firefighter

Posted: Updated:

There is a beautiful new bench outside Engine 53 in South Philadelphia honoring a brave and dedicated firefighter who gave his life to protect his community.

Captain Michael Goodwin's name is etched into the bench which was dedicated yesterday in a moving ceremony.

Also at the ceremony, a check was given to the Goodwin family.  The money was raised by neighbors who sold memorial ribbons to help the family.

Goodwin's wife says she appreciates all of the support.
