Joe Torrillo

...
Joe Torrillo was a 25 year Lieutenant with the NYC Fire Dept. who is now retired on disability. He spent the first 15 years of his career in Engine Company # 10, across the street from the South Tower of the World Trade Center.
While recuperating from a severe injury on New Year's Eve of 1996 going in to 1997, Joe was assigned to convalesce in the office of fire safety education. Eight months in to this "light-duty" position, Joe was ultimately named the Director of this public-based program.
In 2001, Joe worked on a project with Fisher-Price Toys to help design a new children's action figure, part of their line of "Rescue Heroes". In conjunction with the Executives of the Fisher-Price Corp., Joe chose the "Fire Zone" as the location for the press conference to introduce "Billy Blazes" and keeping with the safety theme, chose the date of September 11th, 2001.
On the way to the press conference that was set for at 9am, Joe was about an eighth of a mile away from the World Trade Center, when American Airlines flight #11 struck the South Tower at 8:46 am.
Fearing for his firefighter brothers in Engine Co. 10 and Ladder Co. 10 across the street from the towers, Joe diverted to the scene to render assistance. Unfortunately in the rescue operation, Joe was buried alive with a fractured skull, broken ribs, broken arm, crushed spine and heavy internal bleeding.
