ATLANTA (WTVM) - An Atlanta girl got a birthday surprise from her uncles earlier this week. 

However, they’re not your typical uncles. They’re her late father’s co-workers, who wanted to help celebrate her special day. 

Elizabeth Smiley is the daughter of the late Atlanta Police Department Officer Shawn Smiley, one of the officers killed in an Atlanta police helicopter crash in November 2012. 

On her most recent birthday on Tuesday, June 21, her “uncles in blue” – members of the helicopter unit who worked with her father – surprised her with an iPad. 

“Her father is watching her from above,” said the City of Atlanta Police Department in their Facebook post.
