The first recorded casualty of the World Trade Center bombing was a Roman Catholic priest and NYFD chaplain — Fr. Mychal Judge — who had ridden to the burning towers, and blessed doomed firefighters, hearing last confessions on the way. Rest in Peace!!
Moira Smith, the NYPD officer who rescued people from the WTC, went back to get more and was killed when the south tower collapsed. She was the only female police officer to die on 9/11. BRAVE WOMAN! Rest her soul
9/11 Firefighter Photo: John Labriola While most able-bodied occupants of the north tower fled down stairwells to safety, firefighters such as Mike Kehoe (pictured) headed up to help the wounded. Kehoe's Ladder 11 firehouse lost six men that day, but he survived to face a life forever changed not only by 9/11 but by the iconic image in which he unwittingly appeared. "In some ways Mike Kehoe came to symbolize the firefighters," Chanin said. Published September 8, 2011
