Two New Jersey state troopers delivered when a canceled Spirit Airlines flight left more than 100 passengers stranded at Atlantic City International Airport.

State Police say the airport was closed Sunday, leaving passengers without any food or transportation. So the troopers ordered and paid for 15 pizzas to feed the passengers. State Police say the troopers did not want to be recognized for their generosity.
