First Responder Friday: Retired NYPD Detective Fred Caravousanos

NEW YORK (WABC) -- For First Responder Friday, we give a shout out to Retired NYPD Detective Fred Caravousanos.

Thank you Detective Caravousanos for your inspiration as part of the NYPD triathlon team and congratulations on finishing your first even IRONMAN! Way to go!

After a life-altering injury, Detective Caravousanos was told he might have difficulty returning to his active lifestyle.

He started with what he could handle and is a real fighter. He got out and did what he could! 2.4 miles of swimming, 112 bike miles, and a 26.2-mile marathon!

----

Whether it's helping out, celebrating a milestone of service, or a first responder in need -- we want to hear about it!
