Roselle, the 9/11 Hero and Guide Dog, who led her blind owner and others down 78 flights of stairs in Tower One of the World Trade Center moments before it collapsed. --- Roselle passed away at 13 years of age.
On 9/11, Roselle and her owner were on the 78th floor of World Trade Center Tower One when American Airlines Flight 11 crashed into the building. Remaining calm and composed, Roselle gracefully led her owner down 1,463 stairs and up Broadway, away from the WTC. Through dust and debris, she guided him to safety, finding an entrance to a subway station and saving her owner's life. This book is amazing!
Michael Hingson was working on the 78th floor of the WTC on the morning of Sept. 11. Blind since birth, Hingson had his guide dog, Roselle, sleeping under his desk. But then came "an incredible bang" when the first plane hit the building, Hingson told Larry King in a CNN interview. Roselle, who had been trained at the prestigious Guide Dogs for the Blind school, along with Quantum ATL employee David Frank guided Hingson down 78 flights of stairs and to safety outside the building.
This yellow Labrador guide dog, Roselle, was with Michael Hingson, her blind companion, on the 78th floor of the World Trade Center North Tower on September 11, 2001. Amid the chaos that ensued when American Airlines Flight 11 was flown into the building, Roselle was able to lead Michael down the flights of stairs, as they'd practiced in fire drills. Once on the ground, Roselle was able to lead not only Michael to safety but many of his sighted coworkers who were blinded by the dust cloud. AMAZING!
