Here's an update on the Houston Police officer who died in a helicopter crash Saturday morning and how a second officer is doing in the hospital.

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- Law enforcement in Houston and Cypress showed up to send a fallen officer's daughter to her first day of school.

The video above is from a previous report.

Eliza Knox and her brother Cooper Knox were greeted by multiple members of the Houston Police Department and the Cy-Fair Fire Department, and other agencies in the driveway of their home.

There were giant signs with their names and grades with mounted patrol to send them on their way.

Eliza started her first day of kindergarten and Cooper began his first day of third grade.

In a Facebook post, the Cy-Fair Fire Department said that the two children will always be in their care.

Eliza and Cooper are the children of Tactical Flight Officer Jason Knox, who tragically died in the line of duty in a helicopter crash in 2020.
