Roselle, the 9/11 Hero and Guide Dog, who led her blind owner and others down 78 flights of stairs in Tower One of the World Trade Center moments before it collapsed

On 9/11, Roselle and her owner were on the 78th floor of World Trade Center Tower One when American Airlines Flight 11 crashed into the building. Remaining calm and composed, Roselle gracefully led her owner down 1,463 stairs and up Broadway, away from the WTC. Through dust and debris, she guided him to safety, finding an entrance to a subway station and saving her owner's life.

The first search and rescue dog on the scene of the World Trade Center disaster on September 11. 2001, was Bear, an 11 year old Golden Retriever. He began recovery efforts immediately, working 18 hour days in the beginning. Rest in Peace, Bear.

Michael Hingson was working on the 78th floor of the WTC on the morning of Sept. 11. Blind since birth, Hingson had his guide dog, Roselle, sleeping under his desk.

Roselle, who had been trained at the prestigious Guide Dogs for the Blind school, along with Quantum ATL employee David Frank guided Hingson down 78 flights of stairs and to safety outside the building.
