LOS ANGELES A Rhode Island mother Thursday paid her respects to fallen Los Angeles police Officer Nicholas Lee, who was featured in a special birthday video for her son battling leukemia.

Rachel Seddon flew from the East Coast to attend the memorial service of 40-year-old Lee, who was killed last Friday when his police cruiser was struck by a heavy duty truck in Beverly Hills.

“Tyler couldn’t be here because he was in the hospital, so I just figured what better thing to do than to come out and support them in their time of need, like they’re supporting me,” she said.
