September 11th is a day America will never forget. What began as a ‘bright blue day’, quickly turned into a generationally traumatic event -- the deadliest terrorist attack on American soil in US history. While the nation watched in horror, first responders and investigators jumped in, trying to pick up the pieces and give the victims back to their loved ones.
Two of those people were from the Philadelphia region. Veteran Philadelphia police officer Jon Taggart works in the Crime Scene Unit. He travelled to Ground Zero with a small team and they spent weeks collecting the remains of victims and locating pieces of the planes.
Dr. Bridget McLaughlin is a dentist in New Jersey. She was one of dozens of dentists who assisted the New York Medical Examiner’s office in identifying 9-11 victims through dental records.
