Courageous 9/11 Firefighter Describes Miraculously Surviving Twin Towers Collapse - The Blaze -Lieutenant Joe Torrillo’s story of bravery, courage and survival on September 11, 2001 is inspiring. Considering all he endured, though, it’s a miracle that he lived to tell the tale of his terrifying experience.  On the morning of September 11th, 2001, Torrillo, then an active New York City firefighter, was planning to head to a press conference to address a new children’s safety initiative he was involved in. But as we now know, the day took an unexpected turn that no one, including Torrillo, could have anticipated. He explains:  “The day, itself, was filled with a lot of irony. I was actually on my way to a press conference to introduce a new rescue hero — a children’s toy — that I had helped design with Fisher Price.”  Just before 9 o’clock a.m., the first plane hit the North Tower of the World Trade Center. While traveling into the city, Torrillo had a full view of the skyline. At that point, he says he could see “about nine floors of fire” beginning to engulf the building.  Read more......... AW:  This is an incredible story, the video clip is a more patriotic encouragement and love of country, what he went thru on 9/11 is contained in the text of his story, please read.
