The Families of the Worcester Drowning Victims
On Friday, June 4th, Worcester Police Officer Enmanuel “Manny” Familia responded to a call for the report for people struggling to stay afloat in Green Hill Pond. Without hesitation Officer Familia along with 4 other officers jumped in to save the children. Officers were able to save 2 of the 3 children. Upon getting back to shore, officers noticed that Officer Familia had not yet resurfaced. Unfortunately, Officer Familia and a 14-year-old boy died tragically. Officer Familia was a 5-year veteran of the Worcester Police Department and leaves behind his wife and two children.
We are immediately starting to raise funds and will be hosting an on-air fundraiser throughout WEEI’s The Greg Hill Show on Monday, June 7th for the families of Officer Familia and the 14-year-old boy. Please consider making a donation to support these families in their time of need.
