Farmer identified the pair to WMAZ as Houston County firefighters Timothy Soler and Alex Liczewsky. The fire department confirmed in a Facebook post that some of its volunteers and recruits took part in the tribute.
“On this day 17 years ago, many brave men and women climbed up to the 110 floor of the World Trade Centers to rescue anyone they could from a terrible fate,” fire officials said. “Many of these men and women never returned from that building.”
Farmer told WMAZ the firefighters finished their trip in less than an hour.
"It was a very special moment I will never forget and I'm so glad I got to witness it,” she told the news station. “It makes me proud to be an American."
