An Unlikely Hero The Marine who found two WTC survivors. By Rebecca Liss Updated Tuesday, Sept. 10, 2002, at 6:13 PM ET Sunday marks the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 terror attacks. In a 2002 piece reprinted below, Rebecca Liss recounts the story of one "crazy brave" Marine who rushed to Ground Zero and worked through the night to help rescue two survivors trapped in the rubble of the Twin Towers.
Only 12 survivors were pulled from the rubble of the World Trade Center after the towers fell on Sept. 11, despite intense rescue efforts. Two of the last three to be located and saved were Port Authority police officers. They were not discovered by a heroic firefighter, or a rescue worker, or a cop. They were discovered by Dave Karnes.
