Tugboat named for Port Authority executive killed on Sept. 11
The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey is honoring a senior executive killed in the Sept. 11 attacks.
William Fallon Jr. was a guiding force at the agency. Officials have now renamed one of the tugboats used to steer big ships into port after him.
Fallon’s family and colleagues watched on as a Catholic priest blessed the boat.
"It's a fitting tribute. He spent his life in the maritime industry,” says Fallon’s son Christopher Fallon.
"He loved his family, had a good heart. He was an honest, a very honest, kind man,” says widow Brenda Fallon.
The tugboat will operate out of New York City.
