On Sept. 11, 2001, NYPD Lt. Theresa Tobin was caught in the collapse of the South Tower. As debris fell, shards of glass sprayed into her back and a piece of concrete pierced her special ballistic helmet before lodging in her skull. Miraculously, Tobin, now a deputy chief, was among the fortunate first responders who survived. More.
