Heroes Who Turned Night Into Day at Ground Zero Now Ailing
Posted On: Sep 11, 2019
Sept. 11, 2019 | HEALTH & SAFETY | (Click image to enlarge) Teamsters Local 817 President Thomas J. O’Donnell was driving with his father in New York City when he witnessed the first plane crash into the World Trade Center on the morning of Sept. 11, 2001. “We saw that plane hit the tower and we knew the country was under attack,” recalls  O’Donnell, who leads the Great Neck-based union that works in transportation, casting, and locations for film, television, and Broadway productions. Although his union’s members work in the entertainment industry, they were among the many unsung heroes who responded to Ground Zero within hours and spent days, weeks, and months after the attacks. And just like the first responders facing severe health challenges, some members of the union have succumbed to cancers caused by toxins present at Ground Zero… Long Island Press  Photo: Getty Images
