A 20-year veteran of the NYPD who was on duty on 9/11, Anthea Appel shares her account of that day that she documented in her book called “First Responders.”
First Responders tells the story of 9/11 from the perspective of the NYPD Emergency Service Unit. The author provides a fresh look as to what really happened that day, such as the arrest of a mysterious man in the North Tower, the search for black boxes, and the daring air rescue attempt by a team of Emergency Service Unit cops. She also discusses the news black-out by the mainstream media and government cover-up of the illnesses incurred by more than 40,000 Ground Zero rescue workers (70% of which are now ill).
These important and powerful stories have never been told…until now.
