The reason a retired nypd officer was flying a helo is that it was his job. He flew in the military and also for the nypd. Mike was a great guy and even better pilot . Shame on anyone for speculating without any knowledge. RIP mike scarfia it was a pleasure knowing you.

I cant stand to read any more rude, obnoxious and disgusting comments! This pilot was my family, MY GODFATHER. As I sit here crying, unable to fully comprehend the horrific loss my family has been forced to accept, I come across this B.S....you people are vile and just evil! I want to thank everyone who offered assistance or left kind words. If you were a witness, I'm so sorry you or your children saw this. As I pray for strength for my family and all of the people who knew and loved my uncle Mike, I will pray for the people who witnessed it and all who tried to help, I'll also pray for the "rude commentors"...godforbid nothing like this ever happens to someone you know.

Thank you for coming to my Uncles defense. Anyone who knows him knows how great of a pilot he was and it breaks my heart to read all of this garbage. I know in my heart he diverted the heli away from the crowded mall...regardless of what some of these fools are saying.
