Cornish 9/11 Hero Film
7:00am 15th June 2013
A feature film about the Cornish hero who saved thousands of lives in 9/11 could be released within years.
It'll tell the tale of Rick Rescorla growing up in Hayle and serving in Vietnam before he heroically led colleagues to safety at the twin towers.
Widow Susan tells Pirate FM there has already been an opera based on his story: "The curtains open and the first scene is Hayle, Cornwall in the early 1940's with all the American soldiers going back and forth and a little boy who plays Rick, who is so excited about this, singing and then his mother chasing him down the street.
"We can't let the younger generations forget anything about this. Because what happened in America happened to the whole world. It changed everything. We have to take it forward."
