Firefighters save woman from smoke-filled Brooklyn apartment with seconds to spare

Firefighters, one of whom is a September 11th family member, rescued a Brooklyn woman from her smoke-filled apartment on Friday, reported Ben Kochman in the New York Daily News.

When the FDNY arrived at the Brownsville building, neighbors screamed that a woman might be inside. Lt. Chris Ganci and Firefighter Peter Brady ran to save her. The victim is expected to make a full recovery.

Lieutenant Ganci lost his father, Peter Ganci, who was FDNY Chief of Department, in the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center.
