"Hector, my nephew is now a hero among heroes. He was rescuing office workers who were glued to their desks, scared and in great need of help. Rumored accounts place him and his Engine Company 23 in Tower # 2 on or around the 20th floor where they were last seen. Both Hector and Firefighter Papageorge had swapped shifts that day and were not even supposed to be there. This shows their calling to fate and to the courage and heroism they displayed in the face of great danger entering a towering inferno to save countless lives that day."
