9/11 Last Man Out

Don’t quite know why this is happening now/again(?) but I remember watching him on Islam Channel when Yvonne Ridley interviewed him, so I won’t be going to this event but others may be interested.

9/11 LAST MAN OUT – WILLIAM RODRIGUEZ

Date, time:
Saturday 16th June 2007
6:00pm

Venue / Travel info:
London Muslim Centre
82-92 Whitechapel Road
London E1 1JQ

William Rodriguez, the last person out of the World Trade Centre as it collapsed on Sept. 11, 2001 will be joining us on Saturday!

He will be giving a powerful testimony of his version of what really happened on that day, don’t miss this opportunity to hear the true events from the man himself.

William Rodriguez, is a native of Puerto Rico, a citizen of the United States, and a resident of the State of New Jersey. On September 11, 2001, and for approximately nineteen years prior thereto, Rodriguez was employed as a maintenance worker at the World Trade Center (WTC) in New York.

On 9/11, Rodriguez single-handedly rescued fifteen (15) persons from the WTC, and as Rodriguez was the only person at the site with the master key to the North Tower stairwells, he bravely led firefighters up the stairwell, unlocking doors as they ascended, thereby aiding in the successful evacuation of unknown hundreds of those who survived. Rodriguez, at great risk to his own life, re-entered the Towers three times after the first, North Tower impact at about 8:46 A.M., and is believed to be the last person to exit the North Tower alive, surviving the building’s collapse by diving beneath a fire truck.

This is a free event.

  1. No one doubts William Rodriguez, amonst hundred-if not thousands-of others performed noble and heroic acts on 9/11. The canard that he was the “last man out of the North Tower” is laughable. Maybe the last people out of the North Tower were the survivors of Ladder Co. 6, and the woman they rescued, Josephine Harris. Maybe. No one will ever know for sure. What arrogant baloney to claim such a title.
    Pitiful.

  3. Salaams, Peace to all
    btw – HE does not claim it for himself. ALL OF AMERICA CALLS HIM THIS! He is the biggest National Hero of 9/11 in America, he has been honoured five times at the WHite House, and his actions led to the saving of hundreds of lives. Every year they have a parade of the heroes. He is the biggest hero out of them all!
    I was one of those who helped organise this event btw.
