New York City officials released 19 additional recordings of telephone calls Friday made to 911 operators from the World Trade Center on the morning of Sept. 11, 2001.
A call by Larry Boisseau, a fire safety director for O.C.S. Security, to the 911 emergency services hot line was one of 19 the city released Friday following a lawsuit filed by The New York Times and some victims' families.
Most of the new tapes only included operator's side of the conversations, to protect callers' privacy. The call by Boisseau was left unedited since he was on the job as a fire safety officer when he made the call.
The 911 operator Boisseau spoke to tried to reach emergency services for Boisseau, but the operator's call to a paramedic went unanswered for nearly three minutes while she spoke to Boisseau
"EMS is not picking up," she told Boisseau.
"OK, maybe you can keep trying," he said. "I gave you my information. I kind of gotta get going. This is my job. Fire safety."
