CHESAPEAKE, Va. (WAVY) — On Saturday afternoon, first responders from five local departments came together to hold a drive-by salute for the daughter of a longtime Norfolk police officer.
Three-year-old Morgan is battling a brain tumor and is set to have surgery on August 24 at Children’s Hospital of The King’s Daughters.
The first-responders from Norfolk Police Department, Norfolk Sheriff’s Office, Chesapeake Police Department, Chesapeake Sheriff’s Office and Chesapeake Fire Department teamed up to make the event happen.
A long line of emergency vehicles drove down Morgan’s street with lights flashing and sirens blaring as she watched in a purple princess dress.
Morgan’s father, Chris, has been a police officer in Norfolk for the past 17 years. Previously, he served as a Norfolk dispatcher for 9 years.
The Norfolk Police Department is asking for the public to keep Morgan and her family in their thoughts and prayers.
