WTC bomb attack survivor reunites with NYPD officer who saved him 25 years later

At lunchtime on February 26, 1993, Carl Selinger was trapped in a smoke-filled elevator in the North Tower of the World Trade Center when terrorists bombed the basement parking garage. He wrote a letter to his family, thinking he would die there.

Five hours later, he was saved by NYPD Sergeant Timothy Farrell.

Selinger and Farrell just met again, in time for the 25th anniversary of the bombing, reports Michael Scotto of NY1.

Farrell also responded to the September 11, 2001 terrorist attack on the Trade Center.
