BROOKLYN -

NYPD officers rode Santa's sleigh through the streets of Brooklyn handing out gifts to children across the borough for the second year in a row.

Patrol Borough Brooklyn North stopped at 10 precinct buildings on their path and handed out gifts to children watching from the street.

The NYPD says it was the second year of the Brooklyn sleigh ride.

Officers even surprised a family with a new TV after police say they lost everything in a fire.

Officers dressed as super heroes and Disney characters handed out more than 5,000 gifts thanks to donations.
