Mayor honors explosion victim at BK church

Mayor Bill de Blasio spoke Sunday morning at Saint Rita's Roman Catholic Church in Brooklyn.



The mayor was visiting the church to talk about affordable housing.



He took a moment of silence to honor the victim and to offer support to those who are hurting after Saturday's deadly explosion in Borough Park.



The mayor also asked church members to support the first responders, who he says did a good job.
