American passenger on American Flt .11 who was able to get through on her cell phone, crying "Oh my God, I see buildings! I see water!" just before her line went dead. Her chilling remarks describing what was going on that plane moments before it hit the New York World Trade tower which gave us the first information that fatal morning of 9/11/2001.

The award will be presented every year on Sept 11 to a Massachusetts citizen recognized for extraordinary courage and bravery in an effort to save a life.
