Thousands gather for funeral of firefighter killed in movie set blaze


FDNY did the city of New York proud by giving hero fire fighter Michael Davidson a tremendous send off. 
It’s so heart wrenching.  RIP, Michael! 
NY Post reports fallen city firefighter Lt. Michael Davidson was remembered Tuesday as “a hero of the highest order” — and “a great family man” who had firefighting “in his blood” — at a funeral service that drew thousands of fellow comrades and loved ones to Manhattan’s St. Patrick’s Cathedral. 

“It was clear from the very beginning of his career that he was special,” FDNY Commissioner Daniel Nigro, speaking to mourners at the packed landmark church, said of the 37-year-old married father of four young children who lost his life last week while battling a blaze in Harlem – less than eight miles away.

“Mike commanded every situation and led his fellow firefighters into battle,” Nigro said. “Mike Davidson loved being a New York City firefighter. He loved the opportunity it gave him to help others on every tour.”
