My dear cousin Abdu Malahi was an educated elite-who was employed at the Marriot World Trade Center in NY as an Audio-Visual Engineer.
He died that day saving the lives of others not thinking of his own-He had plenty of time to get out of the hotel but he stayed behind.
The Marriot Hotel in WTC was in full capacity It had over 1000 guest, 22 Floors 825 Rooms-It was connecting to the North&South Tower. It was a 4 diamond hotel located in the heart of NY.
Running up & down the stairs 22 floors Flights of stairs knowing the building corner by corner with no lights electricity or elevators everything was shut off.
As Fire fighters & Police officers rushed in, this unspoken Hero will direct them & Lead them through the Emergencies plans & exits.
As an Engineer he was one of the Few who knew the building blindly-So he took it upon himself as an Honorable Muslim to evacuate each Hotel guest as his duty & so he did just that.
Please take a moment to remember those who were lost & their families..
Abdu was not a fire fighter nor a police officer yet fought to the last minute to rescue guest of the Marriot WTC
