Comm. David Chong remembers 9/11

White Plains Public Safety Commissioner David Chong opened up to News 12 about his experiences during the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. Speaking to a group of first responders and politicians at the White Plains Public Library, Chong said that fateful day in September is one he will never forget.

At the time of the attacks, Chong was a New York City police officer and one of the thousands ordered to go to the site to try and rescue those still stuck inside.

Chong says he'll never forget his friends, colleagues and all heroes that day who did not make it out alive.
