A man saved by his guide dog on Sept. 11, 2001 will recount his story at Adelphi University Monday.
Michael Hingson, author of the book "Thunder Dog," will give an evening lecture Monday at 6 p.m. at Adelphi's Performing Arts Center Concert Hall. The event is free and open to the public.
Hingson, who is blind, was working in the World Trade Center and survived the attacks because of his guide dog, Roselle. The golden retriever, who sadly died in 2011, led her owner down 78 floors to safety.
Since 2001, Hingson has shared his story as a public speaker and now in his bestselling book, Thunder Dog: The True Story of a Blind Man, His Guide Dog, and the Triumph of Trust at Ground Zero.
In honor of the 12-year anniversary of the World Trade Center attacks, Adelphi is welcoming Hingson to speak.
