New Zealand Firefighters Honor 9/11 Victims With Powerful Haka

Over the weekend, more than 160 firefighters in New Zealand gathered at the Sky Tower in Auckland for the Memorial Firefighter Stair Climb, an event that commemorates “the New York City firefighters killed on 9/11 and the New Zealand Fire Service firefighters who have lost their lives in the line of duty.” After reading the names of all 343 firefighters that lost their lives on 9/11, and the names of all 57 New Zealand firefighters who lost their lives while serving, firefighters performed a powerful and emotional Haka to honor those lost. Afterwards firefighters climbed 1,103 stairs to the top of the Sky Tower, some firefighters even climbed the stairs twice.
