Rosemont Remembers Responders
Rosemont’s Public Safety Department gathered for a memorial service Sunday morning in remembrance of the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.
Over 100 firefighters, police officers, village officials and Rosemont residents met for the service at 8:15 a.m. at Fire Station No. 1 on River Road.
Nearly 3,000 lives were lost in the attacks on New York City, the Pentagon, and the downing of a United Airlines flight in Shanksville, PA.
Fifteen years ago to the day, at 8:46 a.m. the first of two passenger flights from Boston crashed into the World Trade Center’s North Tower in New York City. At 9:03 a.m., the second flight crashed into the South Tower. At 9:37 a.m., a third flight in the coordinated attacks crashed into the Pentagon outside Washington, D.C. Passengers attempted to the stop the hijackers in the fourth flight, and ended up crashing in a Pennsylvania farm field 160 miles from Washington, D.C.
