Decorated Hero of World Trade Centre to visit Brookes University.
World Trade Centre worker William Rodriguez was the last man pulled alive from the wreckage of the World Trade Centre on 9/11.
Having refused to escape to safety he plunged back into the building three times using his janitor's master keycard to open doors allowing hundreds of trapped people to escape. He only escaped with his own life after diving under a fire engine as the building collapsed around him.
He has received honours from the White House no less than five times and now shares his incredible story of heroism and bravery in a series of UK talks.
His eyewitness account of what really happened that day may shock as much as it inspires.
