Retired Port Authority cop fights state for benefits following 9/11 injuries

If there is one man who has been at the center of all things 9/11, it’s this guy.

The 1993 World Trade Center bomb blew up just above his head. He was inside the World Trade Center when the buildings collapsed in 2001. Less than six months later, he was on a plane to Pakistan to hunt terrorists.

But now he’s fighting here at home — against the state of New York.
