(NBC) The family of an NYPD cop who worked at the World Trade Center site and died of cancer last week said the city changed his death certificate to scrub any mention of Sept. 11.
Howard Wong told the New York Post that Officer George Wong‘s hospice doctor, Lyla Coreoso, wrote “cancer” from “9/11 exposure” on his death certificate after he died last Thursday following a two-year battle with gastric cancer.
According to the Post, the medical examiner’s office later changed the cause of death to “pending.”
