Discovery to present ‘9/11 E-Men Heroes’ to reveal rescue squad’s heroism, sacrifice

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.

Discovery-Channel-logos-discovery-channelFeaturing 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.

Narrated by Al-Jazeera America’s Tony Harris, 9/11 E-MEN HEROES airs on Discovery Channel on Thursday, September 11th at 8 PM ET/PT.

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.

9/11 E-MEN HEROES is produced for Discovery Channel by Testimony Films, where Andy Attenburrow, David Long and Steve Humphries are producers. For Discovery Channel, John Cavanagh is executive producer.
