New Zealand firefighters took to the streets of Auckland on Wednesday to offer their own salute to first responders died trying to save others in the immediate aftermath of the 9/11 terrorists attacks in New York.
U.S. Ambassador Scott Brown, who shared his own videos of the event, wrote: “An appropriate and uniquely Kiwi way to remember the bravery and sacrifice of 9/11 first responders.”
