Hear from perhaps the luckiest survivors of the attack on the World Trade Center.
- An extraordinary true story of survival against all odds.
- Follow 16 survivors through the harrowing events of 9/11.
- A unique and moving look at the disaster.
It is perhaps the single most amazing story of 9/11--12 firefighters, three office workers, and a Port Authority cop lived through the devastating collapse of the North Tower, survived for hours under half-a-million tons of debris and were rescued when all hope seemed lost.
THE MIRACLE OF STAIRWAY B reveals the chain of uncanny coincidences and bizarre events that enabled these individuals to stay alive when so many were dying all around them. In telling their interlocking stories from the time they woke on 9/11 to the moment they were finally reunited with their families, this moving special also tells the bigger story of the heroic efforts of the firefighters to save lives--and of the 2,700 men and women who never made it home.
