WEST ISLIP - A ground-breaking ceremony was held today on a Suffolk County playground dedicated to a 6-year-old killed in the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre.

The group Where Angels Play has committed to building 26 playgrounds that were destroyed by Superstorm Sandy. Each playground is then dedicated to one of the students who were killed in Newtown.

This West Islip playground is dedicated in the memory of Madeline Hsu, who loved Fire Island and the colors pink and purple.
