FDNY Heroes Reunite With Office Workers One Year Later After Narrow Escape

September 3, 2002 -- Fire Lt. Girard Owens spent nearly a year wondering if the two people he helped out of the World Trade Center had survived - or if they were killed when the north tower fell moments after they fled the building.


"Deep down in my heart, I wish I was with them, the guys who died. They're not suffering anymore," Owens said.

Onigbogi, 46, still has trouble breathing. He hasn't been able to work since the attack.

Like Owens, he has trouble sleeping.

"It's like you are trapped in your own experience, because you don't have somebody who knows what you felt," Onigbogi said.

Now he does.
