Firefighter Michael Otten

Michael Otten called his wife at 8:45 and told her to turn on the TV. He had a habit of calling her to report fires. Busy getting their three boys ready for school, she only looked for a minute, told him she’d talk to him later, and then said goodbye and hung up. This third generation firefighter would join Ladder 35 and head downtown within minutes. He had a brother-in-law who worked on the 80th floor of 2 WTC. Only one of them made it home that night.
