Kenneth Davis, New York Fire Department paramedic

Kenneth Davis was a paramedic for the fire department of New York City on September 11, 2001. He watched the plane crash into the first tower that morning as he drove into Manhattan. He suffered several injuries as he worked at the site that day, and since then, his physical and mental health has declined as a result. Now living in southwest Florida, Davis's recovery is ongoing.
