Cornish 9/11 Hero Remembered
7:02am 16th March 2013
A Cornish school has remembered its biggest hero.
Rick Rescorla gave his life on 9/11 to save nearly three thousand workers.
The Hayle born security guard was last seen walking back into the Twin Towers as they started to collapse.
Now his widow Susan is visiting his old primary Penpol, calling on us not to forget his actions.
Susan said: "To be able to take his own philosophy of declaring what you're about as a young person, and trying to stay on a path. Sometimes you go off that path, and sometimes you come on. But that, at the end of the day, you knew that you did the very best that you could and that's what he was going on 9/11.
"The thing I talk about now is the legacy to take forward, and that legacy also includes this school. Not about the acolades of Rick the man, you know, all of the things that he loved in Cornwall. Even though he became an American citizen, he never forgot his Cornish roots."
