Cop with a photo request

Gents, I'm looking for a photo from 9-11.

It's the interior or a stairwell in one of the towers. A packed line of people are on their way down. On the left, a lone firefighter in turnouts is climbing upward.

Can anyone help me out? Does anyone know who he is and what became of him?

This one? No idea what happened to him.

Edit: From the article "The picture above is Mike Kehoe, from Staten Island, who went up the stairs but somehow survived."

That's him. What courage.


Still curious as to what happened if anyone knows. Thanks.

Sam,
I edited my reply after you posted. According to the article where i found the picture, his name was Mike Kehoe, and he survived.

Damn. The aftermath was not so good for him. http://www.firehouse.com/forums/t17931/

I hope things got better and that he's found some peace.

Courage is being scared to death - but saddling up anyway. John Wayne
US movie actor & director (1907 - 1979) Lots of hero's that day.

When I first saw that photo in the weeks after 9-11, it struck me as similar to combat photos where a soldier or Marine's expression is captured that is so vivid that you can almost feel what they are feeling.

I am sorry that Fire Fighter Kehoe endured what he did in the aftermath.

I agree and he did nothing wrong in my opinion.

Wow, after all these years, I never knew what happened to him. I hope things are going better now for him.
