HOUSTON (AP) — Services will be held this week for a Houston police officer who drowned last month after being trapped in Hurricane Harvey-related flooding while driving to work.
A funeral was scheduled Wednesday morning for 60-year-old Sgt. Steve Perez.
Police say Perez became trapped in his patrol car in a flooded highway underpass while heading to work before dawn on Aug. 27.
Chief Acevedo said Perez’s family did not want him to go to work, but he did, telling his family, “We’ve got work to do.”
Perez was two days shy of his 60th birthday.
A Houston police statement says the funeral will be at 9:30 a.m. Wednesday at Co-Cathedral of the Sacred Heart.
