Ms. Fortino interviewed my good friend and 9/11 survivor, Jack Delaney. Jack was Director of Emergency Medical Services for New York Presbyterian Hospital and responded so quickly to the World Trade Center that he was caught in the rubble when the buildings collapsed. (Read Jack Delaney’s incredible story of 9/11 and it’s aftermath here).
