''If You Die Here,We All Die Here''

''If You Die Here,We All Die Here''

This story is about four people who were involved in the September 11th attack,in 2001. These four people were also in the book 9/11 Heroes. The story starts out with two officers named Will Jimeno and Jhon Mcloughlin. They were on their way to help save people when suddenly broken concrete and steel fell on them,and they were unable to get out . They yelled for help,but nobody heard them. Meanwhile, the third person in this story named Chuck Sereika had fallen into a deep funk and had been held up in his apartment for five days .He didn't answer the phone, didn't shower, or anything. All he did was mope around. For years he had been fighting depression and an eating disorder. When he turned on the TV he saw what had happened and decided that he wanted to help, which was something he hadn't done in a long time.

Chuck sereika had been a peramedic for 15 years, but was worried that someone would ask for his certification because it had been expired. He decided to go look for survivors anyways. When he did, he met someone named David Karnes who was a marine for 23 years. Chuck Sereika and David Karnes decided together they would search to find survivors. After an hour of searching they heard a scream. It was Will Jimino and his friend Jhon Mcloughlin. It took 13 hours before Jimino was set free ,and his friend was saved within 21 hours. After Jimino was rescued he underwent 8 surgeries and spent 3 months in the hospital. His friend Jhon Mcloughlin had 30 operations and spent 4 months in the hospital. After that Chuck Sereika said ''I believe that i was there for a reason! Will was not supposed to die.'' This was just one of many traumatic, but inspiring stories that took place on September 11,2001. It shows that when tragedy hits people come together to help one another in more ways than one.
