Remembering 9/11: Ground Zero

Nearly 10 years after the Sept. 11 attacks, Ground Zero has become a place where millions go to experience history first-hand and one Orange County widow is helping people do just that.

Ann Van Hine, of Greenwood Lake, lost her firefighter husband, Richard Van Hine, on 9/11. She now walks the streets of lower Manhattan giving tours for the September 11th Families' Association and sharing her personal tragedy.

Van Hine says her husband died while helping a civilian and that knowing he was doing his job has gotten her through the loss.
