Louie Cacchioli, 51, is a firefighter assigned to Engine 47 in Harlem.
We were the first ones in the second tower after the plane struck. I was taking firefighters up in the elevator to the 24th floor to get in position to evacuate workers. On the last trip up a bomb went off. We think there was bombs set in the building. I had just asked another firefighter to stay with me, which was a good t More..hing because we were trapped inside the elevator and he had the tools to get out.
WTC Asbestos - Another reason for taking down the towers?
They would have been needed to be taken down eventually!
