Former medic recalls brush with death after 9/11 attack
He and his crew treated firefighters who got out of the first falling tower
NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. — A former New York City paramedic who had a brush with death after the terrorist attack on the World Trade Center says he is still feeling the effects 12 years later.
Chevalo Wilsondebriano now lives in North Charleston. Wilsondebriano was stationed in the borough of Queens and was a first responder after the planes hit the twin towers. "They immediately then sent me in a disaster ambulance," Wilsondebriano said." I was on the phone with my then girlfriend who told me that a tower had collapsed and the truth is, I didn't believe her."
Soon, Wilsondebriano would see for himself. He and his crew treated firefighters who got out of the first falling tower.
