“So it is 9-11, and I am trying to reflect. First the miracle that my father, may he live and be well, survived the collapse of the tower, and the fact that he survived the first attack on the WTC in 1993 as well. Second, is the fact that I survived. I will never forget Sammy Erez , the man who made sure that I didn’t not go into the inferno on 9-11, and grabbed my fathers helmet, and swore to me “Zvi, I will bring him back to you alive, I swear” – and he did. Hearing his voice on the Hatzalah radio, “F 106 to H BASE CODE 1″ – and then screaming, ” Tell Q 155 (my number at the time) that I have STATE 1 and he is alive” Sammy, I miss you today more then ever!!”

While Sammy survived 9/11 he unfortunately passed away a few years ago.
