I don’t believe in coincidences.
In a powerful moment captured on video, a Minnesota firefighters’ 9/11 memorial display had a very fitting visitor:
An American eagle.
The Andover Fire Department was preparing their tribute to their fallen brothers and sisters who responded to the World Trade Center following the September 11 terrorist attacks when Fire Chief Jerry Streich noticed the eagle landing atop their display.
So he grabbed his phone, and the video has now gone viral, being viewed over 3 million times in less than 24 hours.
“Look what landed on top of the aerial on 9/11,” Streich says in the video. “Isn’t that unbelievable? This eagle just landed on the aerial while we were doing the 9/11 memorial. Phenomenal.”
Local KARE 11 reports:
The fire truck, which was parked on the Highway 10 bridge, was holding an American flag to honor and remember those who lost their lives on 9/11. While the Andover Fire Department — along with several surrounding departments — held their tribute, an eagle perched at the top of the aerial truck, creating a chill-inducing moment.
“There’s no better symbol to represent America today than a flag but then for an eagle to land on a fire truck holding a flag, I mean, it doesn’t get much more symbolic than that,” Streich said.
“I had to look at it a few times,” he added, of the moment he first noticed the eagle. “And then I thought, I need to videotape this!”
