The 7th annual blessing of police and fire department motorcycle riders took place in Tinley Park Sunday.

It's sponsored by the chaplains of the south suburban police and fire departments.

Each rider is anointed with oil and there's a prayer for the safety of both rider and bike.

It all started in honor of Thornton police officer George McDonough who was killed in a motorcycle accident eight years ago.
