D.C. rallies to save home of former paramedic
Occupy Our Homes DC on Monday rallied to help stop the eviction of Deborah Harris. Harris worked for 23 years as a Paramedic EMT with the D.C. Fire Department before suffering an injury on the job, causing her to fall behind on her mortgage.
Deborah Harris, tearful but composed, emerged from a Chase finance office on Monday afternoon. After falling into foreclosure, her home was auctioned off to Freddie Mac in 2009. Now facing eviction, she's receiving help from Occupy Our Homes D.C. and is trying to get a loan modification to keep her house.
