9/11 NYPD hero's family faces Gitmo detainees

Police Officer Moira Smith was the only female member of the NYPD killed in the World Trade Center attacks. She died helping survivors escape the south tower as it collapsed.

Now her family is facing down her accused killers. Last month, they were among a select group of victims' relatives who traveled to Guantanamo Bay to attend pre-trial hearings for the detainees accused of plotting the attacks.

Her daughter, Patricia, and widower Jim Smith came to Fox 5 to share more about this very personal and emotional journey. Patricia was just a baby during the 9/11 attacks. She is now 17. Jim is a retired NYPD officer.
