Lowell is a 70-year-old man who resides with his wife in Flushing, Queens. He worked for an advertising firm on the 12th floor of the Empire State Building when the attacks of 9/11 occurred. A veteran of the Vietnam War, and a reservist, he spent the ensuing months sifting through rubble, organizing the delivery of heavy lift cranes across the George Washington Bridge, and leading young volunteers in response operations. He slept in the Mayor’s Emergency Bunker at Ground Zero for 40 days, eventually returning home to his wife in late October 2001.
