New Yorkers Still Suffer From Mental Distress Five Years After 9/11

The dust may have long ago settled, but mental distress due to the September 11th attacks is still very much a reality for many. And as we approach the fifth anniversary of 9/11, things aren't getting any easier for many New Yorkers. NY1 Health & Fitness reporter Kafi Drexel filed the following report.

EMT Dennis Heavey and his partner were some of the first responders at the Twin Towers September 11th. Heavey made it out but his partner did not. It's been those moments that have been tough for him to get past even five years later.

"It's hard to still realize what happened," says Heavey. "There are times I find myself driving you know, driving in and out of work just having to pull over because the tears start flowing for no reason at all."

Like so many other New Yorkers, Chuck Dorman was heading to work when he saw everything.
