Sergeant Dennis Kenney
Fire Patrol # 3 ~ Brooklyn
"In just moments they heard some
strange sounds. There was a very gradual rumbling which began to get worse. Then
almost as if out of nowhere and totally unexpected there was this "BOOM"!
Suddenly a big dark debris cloud and blackness fell upon them with the speed and
strength of a bomb and not unlike the eruption of a volcano. Little did they
know that building # 2, the south tower had collapsed.
Sergeant Kenney heard distinctly
"someone's down". Then he turned on his flashlight and to his great surprise he
saw Father Judge. He helped carry father Judge out of the building along with
some FDNY Firefighters.
testimony taken by Author Barbara E. Lang, NYC
Kenney crossed the Brooklyn Bridge from Patrol # 3 and reached Tower 1 just
after the second tower was hit. He and his brave men entered the tower and were
stationed there. During that time, tower 2 exploded and collapsed burying them.
Dennis can be seen in the French Film which was broadcasted on television at
least 5 or 6 times near the Battalion Chief and Father Judge. Later he is one of
the courageous heroes who carries out Father Judge from the building along with
Patrolman Mike Angelini.~ Patrol # 3
