When the World Trade Center collapsed on September 11, 2001, nearly 10,000 emergency rescue workers joined in the efforts to help. More than 300 of those heroes were dogs.
May we never forget those lost on 9/11, and may we always remember those heroes who ran towards the danger without hesitation.
Today, we remember the lives lost, the lives saved, the First Responders, the honorable citizens and all those who who sacrificed on 9/11/2001 - ALL people and pets -
Here in Connecticut: Gov. Ned Lamont said all U.S. and state flags should be lowered to half-staff from sunrise to sunset on Wednesday in remembrance of Sept. 11.
After 18 years the impact of lives lost and the landscape changed is still as fresh as the day it happened.
Many across Connecticut will gather in cities and towns to remember the nearly 3,000 lives lost when terrorists crashed airplanes into the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. Here in Connecticut, we mourn the 161 victims with ties to Connecticut who were killed on Sept. 11, 2001.
Local TSA worker reflects on how 9/11 attacks changed his life
WINDSOR LOCKS, CT (WFSB) -- Wednesday marks 18 years since the Sept. 11 attacks.
As the nation reflects on the somber anniversary, a TSA worker from Connecticut shared how the event changed his life.
William Csontos was a state trooper in 2001 and was conducting training exercises in Norwich when the news of the terrorist attack broke.
He and nine other troopers rushed to ‘ground zero’ to help.
Csontos and his K9 worked to help find anyone that was still alive or trapped in the rubble.
"We coordinated with the NYPD and New York State Police and New York Fire Dept. to deploy in certain areas that they were trying to cover to locate survivors,” Csontos said.
