The wife of a New York City police officer who was stabbed in the head has joined the NYPD police academy as a new recruit.
Dina Loor, 27, was sworn in as one of 1,247 new recruits Wednesday. Officer Eder Loor survived an attack from a Harlem schizophrenic in April 2012. The man had plunged a 3 1/2-inch blade into the officer's head.
"He's always telling me to follow my heart, and this is what my heart says," Dina Loor told the New York Daily News.
