Firefighters 9/11 Tower Climb



 By Johnny Shannon

Hundreds of San Antonio area firefighters climbed the Tower of the Americas Wednesday morning to honor the victims who lost their lives in the 2001 September 11th  terrorist attacks in New York City...

Among those attending  were  San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro,  Police Chief William McManus, City Manager Sheryl Sculley and Fire Chief Charles Hood, who tells 550 KTSA News  more than 343 firefighters, 60 law enforcement officers, and countless civilians  were killed in the tragedy twelve years ago.

To exceed the 110 floors of the World Trade Center twin towers, the firefighters climbed the stairs twice today, some in full bunker gear.
