Long Island man reunited with family after Afghanistan evacuation


The rapid withdrawal of American armed forces from Kabul caused many Afghans to desperately try to leave the country.

For one Afghan native and U.S. Citizen, it was a harrowing experience that almost cost his family their lives. But with the help of an area congressman and a not-for-profit organization, the family was able to safely return to the United States.

Stacy-Ann Gooden has that heartwarming reunion.
