BROOKLYN - Gov. Andrew Cuomo is wrapping up his visit to Puerto Rico.

The visit comes after Puerto Rico's governor invited Cuomo to discuss the island's health care and economic crisis.

Cuomo was a guest at Gov. Alejandro Garcia Padilla's mansion in Puerto Rico Sunday.

He says the goal of the trip is to find ways for New York to be as helpful as possible

Puerto Rico is in the middle of a $72 billion debt crisis, something the governor says cannot be paid.

Mayor Bill de Blasio was not among the 17-member delegation on the trip.
