A longtime firefighter and EMT in New York who responded to the 9/11 attacks died after being exposed to the coronavirus, according to reports.
At least 3,202 people have been killed in the city by the virus, according to a new count released by city health officials Tuesday.
Two members of the Fire Department of New York who worked at Ground Zero following the 9/11 terror attacks died on the same day last week, according to reports.
Responders who worked at the World Trade Center site after the attacks on Sept. 11, 2001, have an increased overall cancer incidence compared to the general population, particularly in thyroid cancer, prostate cancer, and, for the first time ever reported, leukemia, a new study suggests.
According to a report, 200 Fire Department of New York (FDNY) firefighters have died from 9/11-related illnesses.
In remembrance of 9/11, members of Women in Fire are honored to talk with two responders to the tragic Ground Zero event.
