Battalion Chief William McGovern, 49, will begin the listings for the men of Battalion Two. In total, B2 lost 23 members on 9/11. In 1988, McGovern and another firefighters crawled low through smoke to find and rescue two young siblings. The 7-year-old boy had already stopped breathing but was resuscitated by the firefighters. McGovern was quoted as saying, “I’m thankful I could give him a second chance. I saw him come back to life. It’s the greatest experience I ever had.”

On 9/11, McGovern was last seen alive around the 30th floor of Tower One.

He left behind a beloved 11-year-old daughter and a grown son.
