PHILADELPHIA (AP) - A survivor of a deadly Amtrak crash in Philadelphia is giving back to three police officers who carried him from the wreckage.

Nick Ritrivi has season tickets to see the New York Giants. So the three Philadelphia officers joined him Sunday as the Giants hosted the Philadelphia Eagles at the New Jersey Meadowlands.

WCAU-TV (https://goo.gl/LWVp2n) identifies the rescuers as Officers Dan Cosme, Tim Stephan and Clarence Manson.

Photographs show the officers carrying Ritrivi from the Amtrak crash last year and holding him again Sunday during a tailgate outside MetLife Stadium, where the Eagles beat the Giants 35-30.

Eight people died and more than 200 were injured when the speeding train derailed May 12.
