Fallen firefighters honored outside Philadelphia City Hall [video]

What was going to be a memorial marking one year since two Philadelphia Firefighters who lost their lives on the job became even larger today.

Dozens of firefighers and their families attended the service outside City Hall, marking the lives of Lt. Robert Neary, and Firefighter Daniel Sweeney who died a year ago as well as Capt. Michael Goodwin who was killed battling a blaze Saturday.

Firefighters Union Head Bill Gault says his members never forget the families of their brothers who made the ultimate sacrifice.
