NEW JERSEY — A Bronx court officer and 9/11 hero was finally released from a New Jersey hospital Thursday into the arms of his wife.

Sgt. Darrell Cross, 54, spent 72 days in the hospital fighting for his life after contracting COVID-19. He had been in a coma and was moved from Mount Sinai Hospital to a New Jersey hospital after he woke up.

Cross said that what kept him going through the tough times was the knowledge that his wife of 20 years and a community of court officers were waiting for him to come home.
