Mañana en este site la trágica historia de los héroes anónimos de 911. Hombres y mujeres trabajadores y humanos que arriesgaron sus vidas para tratar de rescatar a los sobrevivientes y, más tarde, trabajaron meses extrayendo los cadáveres de los caídos ese imborrable 11 de septiembre del 2001 en Ground Zero. ¿Qué está pasando con estos trabajadores? Tomorrow we’ll have the story of these brave men and women who worked at Ground Zero after the attacks. From heroes to survivors, they now struggle with the physical effects of working in hazardous conditions. What happened to most of them? Why is the government turning their backs on these fine people? What elected officials are helping them?
