Aired - 11 September 2014

Episode summary:

On the thirteenth anniversary of September 11th, Discovery tells the story of the heroism and sacrifice of the NYPD's elite Emergency Service Unit (ESU) and the E-Men heroes who were tasked with rescuing as many people as possible - by any means possible. Featuring previously unseen archive material and moving first-hand testimony, the truly inspirational story of the 9/11 rescue cops will be told on national television for the first time. New York City's elite ESU is a unique institution in law enforcement made up of around 300 highly specialized officers trained in search and rescue, building collapse and heavy weapons and hazardous materials containment. Of the 31 E-Men who rushed into the World Trade Center on that fateful day, only 17 survived. The 14 E-Men who perished were among 60 law-enforcement personnel who died on 9/11, the worst single day in US police history. Despite their devastating losses, the brotherhood of New York's E-Men has emerged stronger than ever and they are finally ready to tell their story.
