DELAWARE COUNTY, Pa. (CBS) — The family of a fallen firefighter from Delaware County received a special gift Friday, just in time for the holidays. Michael Malinowski’s wife and five children just had their mortgage fully paid off thanks to the Tunnel to Towers Foundation.

Malinowski was a captain with the Morton-Rutledge Fire Company.

He died two years ago when he suffered a heart attack after responding to a call for help.
