9/11: Heroes of the 88th Floor
Narrated by actor Chris Noth, 9/11: Heroes of the 88th Floor is an extraordinary tale of bravery and survival inside the World Trade Center after Flight 11 struck the North Tower on September 11, 2001. The two-hour special introduces viewers to two remarkable men whose acts of heroism and courage saved the lives of 77 people and touched many more.
We all know where we were that day in September of 2001 -- we all remember exactly how we heard the news, what we thought, what we felt, and what the rest of our day was. This particular special doesn't deal with our recollections but rather the actions of two men who found themselves at the World Trade Center that day and the actions which they took, actions which saved the lives of 77 others.
Centring on two men -- Frank DeMartini and Pablo Ortiz -- we hear the extraordinary story of how their remarkable acts of heroism, selflessness, and courage saved the lives of over 75 people and touched many more.
We also hear from the survivors themselves, their first-hand accounts of what it was like to be at the centre of this tragic day.
And through archival footage and dramatic recreations we relive their chilling moments of being stranded on the upper floors of the North Tower and their race against time to survive.
