Family of FDNY EMT Killed in Hit-and-Run Plead for Lead in Case: ‘Come out and Help Him’

“There must be something, somebody who saw this or caught some footage, or something that can help lead to the identification of the hit-and-run driver,” his cousin, Pang Lee, said.

Relatives say Liang never hesitated to help others, and now they’re hoping someone will do the same for him. And at a wake Monday, dozens of fellow first-responders, family members and friends came out in mourning and support.

“His job was to be a first responder, to help somebody who’s in need, and now we just need somebody to come out and help him,” Lee said.

His former coworkers at the FDNY said they also want the driver cuffed.

“I want everybody who’s (reading) this to try aand get all the information you can,” said FDNY Lt. Dionne McCoy. “Anything to try and help us find this person that hit our brother.”

Police say the vehicle that hit him was a dark SUV, possibly a Lexus.
