I've gotten along with plenty of people, but the chemistry sucked.
And I've hated people where the chemistry is great.
They reached the 24th floor, then climbed to the 27th. They met at the elevator, where Burke — in his search — had already come upon the two civilians.
When the building shook, Burke commanded his men to get out. They would survive, while Byrne recalled how his captain kept promising by radio he’d “meet (them) at the rig.” It was Hansson, back on the 27th floor, who had one final conversation with Burke. They spoke briefly about whether it might be safe to try the elevator.
His father did not want his children in the same profession — he’d retired at 64, Berry said, worn down “by stress and smoke” — but Burke dreamed since childhood of fighting fires.
Berry said her brother never forgot the lessons their dad offered about what to do inside a burning building: Get the civilians out, and then take care of your men.
The two civilians were discovered by Hansson and his men as they made their way upstairs, checking every floor.
They endured a moment of sickening terror: The building — one of the tallest in the world — shook and swayed like a flimsy wooden bridge in a big wind. Roughly 28 minutes later, Jonas and the others would survive the collapse of the north tower.
They were in a stairwell that formed a protective bubble against the overwhelming torrent of debris.
Hansson did not expect to find Burke, a captain and a superior officer, with this little group of men. A decision was made, as much by a nod and body language as by words themselves.
Burke assumed command of the civilians, while Hansson and his men resumed their harrowing journey down a stairwell. What he didn’t realize then is always with him now: Billy Burke, he said, sacrificed his own life to save theirs.
It's much better if you get along and the chemistry is good.
