article imageVideo: FDNY firefighter meets the man who saved his life on 9/11

By Anne Sewell     Sep 11, 2012 in World
New York - Luke Rudkowski recently set up a meeting that he will remember for the rest of his life. The meeting was between a 9/11 hero and one of the many lives that he saved that day.
9/11 hero, William Rodriguez, was employed as a maintenance worker at the World Trade Center (WTC) in New York. He stayed in the building until the last moment, as he was the only one who had a key to allow the firefighters to access the building.
On a website dedicated to his heroic actions, it says, "On 9/11, Rodriguez initially rescued fifteen (15) persons from the WTC, and as Rodriguez was the only person at the site with the master key to the North Tower stairwells, he bravely led firefighters up the stairwell, unlocking doors as they ascended, thereby aiding in the successful evacuation of unknown hundreds of those who survived. Rodriguez, at great risk to his own life, re-entered the Towers three times after the first, North Tower impact at about 8:46 A.M., and is believed to be the last person to exit the North Tower alive, surviving the building's collapse by diving beneath a fire truck."
Through his actions, he saved many lives, including that of FDNY firefighter, John Schroeder, who he is meeting for the very first time in the video above and We are Change were there to catch the historic moment.
