This episode is about The True Story of a Blind Man, His Guide Dog, and the Triumph of Trust at Ground Zero.

“Michael Hingson is an international hero honored and awarded by top organizations worldwide.”
Larry King

On the seventy-eighth floor of the World Trade Center’s north tower, no alarms sounded, and no one had information about what had happened at 8:46 a.m. on September 11, 2001. All that was known to the people inside was what they could see out the windows: smoke and fire and millions of pieces of burning paper and other debris falling through the air.

Blind since birth, Michael couldn’t see a thing, but he could hear the sounds of shattering glass, falling debris, and terrified people flooding around him and his guide dog, Roselle. Experience survival through the eyes of a blind man and his beloved guide dog. From the moment a Boeing 767 hits the north tower, to the harrowing stairwell escape, to dodging death a second time as both towers fold into the earth.

It’s the 9/11 story that offers a different perspective as we hit the 19 year anniversary tomorrow.
