Members of the Santa Monica Fire Department attended the memorial service for two-year-old Noah Looney in Clark County, Nevada on June 21.

Noah was killed in a tragic accident in the McClure Tunnel in Santa Monica on June 13 that also injured several of his family members.

Santa Monica Fire Fighters Local 1109 raised more than $12,000 to assist the Looney Family in their time of need.

SMFD Battalion Chief Mark Bridges and Deputy Chief Tom Clemo attended the service and presented the check to the Looney Family. Additionally, The Las Vegas Fire Department Pipes and Drums played Amazing Grace as part of the memorial service.

Clemo said the flight to the service from Santa Monica to Las Vegas would not have been possible without the generosity of Angel Flights West; a philanthropic organization that provides free flights to individuals for causes just like this.

"It is with deep appreciation that Santa Monica Fire Department recognizes pilot Jim McElroy and the Angel Flight Team for their generous contribution in allowing fire department representatives to attend the service and present the donation," Clemo said.
