Heroes of 9/11

Series: Ten True Tales
by Allan Zullo

The first responders on September 11, 2001 — firefighters, police officers, emergency medical technicians, paramedics, military officers and even many civilians — risked their lives to save people they didn't know. Every one of them is a hero.

This book features ten gripping stories that reflect the countless breathtaking acts of heroism that occurred inside the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and a hijacked plane. Among other amazing true accounts, you will read about the miraculous survival of the fire captain and his men who were buried alive when the north tower collapsed...the cop who dodged death twice to help save others...and the two navy officers who ran into a burning, crumbling section of the Pentagon to rescue a trapped worker.
