09.11.01 #Thread 8:46am @IWidroff & myself were clearing an emergency call in Midwood Bklyn when a call for “an explosion atop the #WTC “ We responded! Little did we know, at 9:03am a second plane hit the second tower, we were in the BBT at the time..
exiting the tunnel was like a scene out of an apocalyptic movie set flaming chunks of debris atop of smashed cars, convoys of emergency vehicles, sirens blaring all making its way to the #WTC
At that moment we knew this was no “small plane” accident into a building
We staged at the corner of Liberty & West, together with countless other #Hatzolah #FirstResponders #FDNY & #NYPD units trying to determine how to help those trapped in the towers..chaos!
The panic as “another plane” was spotted flying in fast... #USAF F16
#USA was under attack
#NeverForget the horror.. the feeling of helplessness...the jumpers •goosebumps• the realization we may not be able to help those people.. I recall the sense of doom..
we were (are) wired to help.. we were unable to.. the jumpers
the sound of a locomotive racing towards us.. thick angry billowing cloud of death & destruction blanketing everything in its path darkness! 9:59am South Tower #WTC had collapsed
The next few hours are a jumble..
Walking Dead zombies.. covered in thick white soot #NeverForget
knowing @ChaskelBennett @HatzalahEMS @Hatzola had responded... not knowing who was, if anyone, had survived..
those were the thoughts screaming in my head.. my wife, my kids.. what are/were they thinking.. I had lost my cell & radio in the scramble.. #September11
18 is a significant # for Jews.. Chai = Life
It’s “Chai” years since #September11 the world has moved on.. USA has prospered..
“Many Gave Some.. Some Gave All”
We must #NeverForget the brave #FirstResponders that gave all.. never returned home
We MUST live on for them!
