The wife of brave firefighter Orio Palmer said, “People will hear that they all went about their duties without fear, and selflessly,” when the tape is made available to the public.
The farewell voicemail from a flight attendant to her husband
Their voices can still be heard today, more than 20 years later.
The loved ones who are still grieving their loss are consoled by recordings of people who were trapped in the Twin Towers, on hijacked flights, or while emergency personnel ran headlong into their doom.
As a living tribute to the lives of the terror attack victims, many have been saved and shared by their families.
Furthermore, those opinions have offered significant insights into what transpired on September 11, 2001.
They had important information that would subsequently be utilized to arrest and charge multiple terrorists, provide information for the 9/11 Commission Report, and be displayed at the 9/11 Memorial & Museum.
The final 9/11 calls are still a powerfully human tribute to the brutality of that day.
Having accepted a new job offer, successful commercial real estate executive, Mr. Gartenberg left his workplace alone on the 86th story of the north tower on September 11, 2001.
He tried to contact his wife Jill at her Upper East Side workplace shortly after Flight 11’s 8:45 am hit a few floors below him. He called his best friend Adam Goldman because she hadn’t yet arrived.
Adam, there is a fire on the floor, yelled Mr. Gartenberg. “I’m stuck and unable to escape.”
Currently, Mr. Goldman is watching the smoking tower on television. His body shook as he realized his friend was in danger, he would later recall. He advised Mr. Gartenberg to attempt to maintain calm and find a method to escape.
Adam, I’m afraid I can’t maintain my cool with you. Please help me leave this place.
The senior vice president for human resources, Margaret Luberda, was contacted when Mr. Gartenberg next called Julien J. Studley’s offices.
He explained that due to debris holding the doors locked, he was restricted to his office.
A firefighter answered the phone when Ms. Luberda dialed 9/11 on a different line. The fireman informed her that help was on the way.
Jim, they’re coming for you,” she informed Mr. Gartenberg, who was still on the other end of the call.
In addition to calling a TV station to let emergency personnel know where he could be found, Mr. Gartenberg also spoke to another close friend. When speaking to the media, he sounded cool and confident since he didn’t want to scare other families.
She should quit work and go to her mother’s house nearby. They decided when he contacted his wife Jill again.
Mr. Gartenberg answered calls from his friend Mr. Goldman and the HR manager while smoke and heat filled his office and debris kept falling. Nobody informed Mr. Gartenberg of the horrific news even though they had witnessed the second plane strike the south tower.
Speaking to his wife one last time while hiding under a desk in the lobby, Mr. Gartenberg expressed his love for her and their two-year-old daughter Nicole.
He told her, “I love you.” I love Nicole.
“I love you as well.”
She was three months pregnant with their second child.
At 9:03 am, United Airlines Flight 175 struck the south tower where Melissa Doi, 32, a manager at IQ Financial Systems, was working.
She informed the emergency operator that she was trapped at 9:17 am.
God’s mother, holy Mary, stated Ms. Doi.
“There isn’t anyone here yet, and the floor is entirely covered in flames. We’re on the floor, unbearably hot, and we can’t breathe.
The 9/11 operator attempted to calm her for the next four minutes as she remained on the line.
“I’m going to die, aren’t I?
“Ms. Doi asked.
The operator responded, “No, no, no.”
Ms. Doi responded, “I’m going to die.
In recordings made in 2006 and presented as evidence in the terrorism trial of September 11 conspirator Zacarias Moussaoui, the operator is heard saying, “Ma’am, say your prayers.”
Oh my God, it’s so hot. I’m burning up,” said Ms. Doi.
After a short while, Ms. Doi’s voice stopped while the operator talked to her for another 20 minutes. She repeatedly recalled Ms. Doi’s name.
The dispatcher replied, “I’m not sure if she’s just out of breath or if she’s unconscious, but it seems like they are unconscious and snoring.”
“The line is now dead. They hung up. The connection has ended.
Orio Palmer, the deputy chief of Battalion 7 on September 11, 2001, was one of the tens of thousands of first responders that went to the Twin Towers to deal with the attacks.
A malfunctioning lift was fixed and brought to the 41st floor by Mr. Palmer, a 45-year-old certified engineer, and marathon runner.
The married father of three then guided a group of firemen to the impact zone on the 78th level, climbing 37 stories with his 50-pound fire gear while reporting what he saw to the command center. He did this using his exceptional fitness.
The 9/11 Commission Report claims that Mr. Palmer and his team saved people trapped in an elevator immediately before the tower collapsed at 9:59 am.
He bravely and calmly described what he was seeing to his coworkers over the radio, assuring survivors who were rushing down the stairs as he described seeing dozens of civilians dead and casualties.
Mrs. Palmer would later comment, “I didn’t hear fear, I didn’t hear panic.”
People will learn that they all performed their duties fearlessly and selflessly once the recording is made available to the public.

Stephen Palmer, the brother of Mr. Palmer, stated in the 2009 documentary 9/11: Phone Calls from People Trapped in the Towers that “Anybody who was wounded or dying, to know somebody was able to get up there, they realized there was a way to get out.”
“I can only think that must have been some elation or happiness for folks who were there during the hit,” said one observer. Need to see him and understand that there is some hope here because of this stranger.”
