Five firefighters found alive in World Trade Center rubble
Associated Press WriterNEW YORK (AP) -- Rescuers saved five firefighters from the World Trade Center rubble Thursday, more than two days after the landmark twin towers collapsed in a terrorist attack, authorities said.
The five had been trapped in a buried SUV. Three of them were able to walk away after the amazing rescue early Thursday afternoon, the disaster command center said. There was no immediate word on the condition of the other two.
The rescues were made more than 50 hours after two hijacked planes slammed into the twin towers, showering lower Manhattan with steel and glass. Nearly 5,000 people remain missing.
The fire department has said that up to 350 firefighters were missing after rushing to the scene of the 110-story towers, which had been struck by a pair of hijacked airliners. Both towers collapsed after less than two hours.
