Four Kingsborough Public Safety Officers Honored At CUNY Medal Award Recognition Ceremony
On February 18, at 12 noon, in the Recital Hall of the CUNY Graduate Center, four Kingsborough public safety officers were awarded medals at CUNY’s 2nd Annual Medal Award Recognition Ceremony for their courageous performance on October 7, at approximately 4:30 p.m., when they responded to a tragic scene on Oriental Boulevard and Falmouth Street.
Evan Svirsky, 4, was struck and killed by a B49 bus. His mother, Irina Liberman, 45, tried to save him and, in the process, was struck on the head by the bus mirror, rendering her critical. Evan’s brother, 6, was with them at the time but was unhurt.
