The film also follows their families as they try to find out what happened to them, as well as the rescuers who found them in the debris field and pulled them out. Their story shows how the best in people rose above the tragic events of that day.

"Will and I feel an obligation to all those men that we lost that day," says Port Authority Police Dept. Sgt. John McLoughlin. "Through us, we're able to get the story out of all those men that sacrificed themselves that day. There is no doubt in my mind that the filmmakers wanted to show honor and respect to those who perished too."

"John and me, we're down-to-earth people, we're just regular American families," says Jimeno, "but a lot of regular Americans were doing the best they could that day. I am very honored to represent that."

The motion picture based on their experiences, "World Trade Center," is directed by three-time Academy Award®-winner Oliver Stone, who says that from the moment he read Andrea Berloff's screenplay, he knew this was a story that he wanted to tell.
