Fallen New York State trooper honored


HAMBURG, NY - A local state trooper who suffered a deadly heart attack was honored Saturday.

A sign honoring the life of Trooper William Keane was put up along Milestrip Expressway in Hamburg. Keane passed away in 2013 after suffering a heart attack during a police event in Utah.

The event was organized by the Badge of Honor Association, which honors members of law enforcement who make the ultimate sacrifice going above and beyond the call of duty.

Keane was a 26-year veteran of the New York State Police.
