Eleven years later, there are still untold stories from September 11, a fateful day that changed our lives as Americans and impacted the world. On Tuesday night, Discovery Channel will share the untold story of Pasquale Buzzelli in The 9/11 Surfer. Buzzelli, ironically a structural engineer with the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, rode a monstrous wave of falling debris from the 22nd story of the North Tower after evacuating his 64th floor office and following the building’s collapse.
In The 9/11 Surfer, narrated by Willie Geist, you’ll hear from Buzzelli, his wife, the firemen who saved him and others. After keeping silent for so long, he opens up to share his moving and inspiring story. Watch a preview below and tune in tomorrow, September 11, at 8pm ET/PT on Discovery Channel.
