FRANKLIN SQUARE - Police are searching for the suspects who stole a Franklin Square woman's wheelchair ramp. Kerry Aalbue says the ramp she uses to enter and leave her McKinley Street home likely went missing between midnight Saturday and early Sunday morning. Aalbue says she suffers from rheumatoid arthritis, a brain tumor and four pulmonary embolisms, all of which she says she contracted after working at Ground Zero. She also has three children to care for at home. "You don't take something if it doesn't belong to you," Aalbue said. "You just don't. I don't care if it's a Tootsie Roll or a ramp. If it's not yours, leave it alone!" Members of the Sept. 11 community heard Aalbue's story and are trying to raise money to buy her a new ramp.
