9/11 survivor sharing his story of survival


Wednesday, the nation will mark 12 years since the terrorist attack of September 11th.

Many of us remember where we were when the towers fell but some have the experience of living through it.

Like John Mahony, who was working on the 19th floor of tower one for IBM.

Sept. 11, 2001, Mahony was in a morning meeting like any other day when the first plane hit.   

The force knocked some of his co-workers off their feet and smoke quickly filled the room.

Mahony and all of his co-workers evacuated safely.

He left New York after the tragedy and moved to Chicago but the job moved him to Huntsville three years ago.

Mahony has two stories to tell from that day, of course his story of survival and then how his faith has helped him over the past 12 years.

He will host a presentation at St. Mark's Lutheran Church in Huntsville, Wednesday at 7 p.m.
