      I found them on CNN's website. They were taken by a guy who came down from the 71st floor of Tower One. One of the pictures is in my local newspaper, full-page size, with this caption.

      "It was like a ladder up to heaven. I don't think any of them made it." Charles S. Semah, who escaped as firefighters headed up the stairs.

          The Firefighter with #28 on his helmet looking at the camera...
          according to Yahoo news is:"Engine 28 firefighter Mike Kehoe, from Staten Island, assists in the evacuation effort in a stairwell of Tower One Tuesday, Sept. 11, 2001 during the attacks on the World Trade Center towers in New York. These pictures were shot by John Labriola who had an office on the 71st floor of the building. He escaped with no injuries. Fellow firefighter Bobby Annunziato at Engine 28 in Manhattan said Kehoe escaped before the towers collapsed. (AP Photo/John Labriola) "

          This was the quote with the picture on Yahoo's site.
          Just wanted to let you know that it sounds like some made it out.
          God Bless everyone at FDNY.
          Be safe brothers

            The guy in the bottom picture with the red helmet is member of Fire Patrol #2, he also survived.

            The AP caption for this photo reads, "Firefighter from Fire Patrol 2 in Manhattan, Sgt. John Sheehan, left, from New Jersey stands guard as occupants evacuate Tower One Tuesday, Sept. 11, 2001 during the attacks on the World Trade Center towers in New York. These pictures were shot by John Labriola who had an office on the 71st floor of the building. A fellow Fire Patrol 2 patrolman, who requested anonymity, said he escaped with no injuries. Sheehan was treated for smoke inhalation and released."

              Wow that is good to know about the guy from the 28's.My wife and i looked at that picture and were chilled by the thought"Did he make it out?"It is good to know at least a few did.
              You know I have always wanted to see the Fire Patrol but I would have liked to have seen them under other conditions.
