Looking Back on Sept 11; Belizean Remembered

This past weekend was filled with images and interviews marking the twentieth anniversary of 9/11 terrorist attacks and heroic efforts in the aftermath. What some of our younger viewers, especially those born after that fateful year of 2001, is that a Belizean was killed that day. Alva Jeffries was working at the Twin Towers in New York City, on the 96th floor of the first tower, but she never made it home. Tonight news five looks back at a story from 2002 where Jeffries was remembered and the Belizean flag from the World Trade Center was brought back to Belize. Janelle Chanona filed this report.
