One Firefighter is critical and the others have less serious injuries. They were responding to a fire call around 0230. More to follow.
FDNY’S BOB BECKWITH DIES FROM WTC-RELATED CANCER
Bob Beckwith, a retired FDNY Firefighter whose chance encounter with President GW Bush amid the rubble of ground zero became part of an iconic image of American unity after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, has died. He was 91. Beckwith died Sunday night in hospice care after dealing with WTC-related cancer in recent years.
Wearing his old Firefighter helmet from Ladder Company 164 in Queens, the Long Island resident stood with President George W. Bush as he delivered a rousing speech to weary responders three days after the attack and murders. Rest In Peace.
Take Care. Be Careful. Pass It On.
