WBBM Newsradio’s Steve Miller reports Ellen Saracini’s husband, Victor, was the pilot of United Flight 175, which crashed into the South Tower of the World Trade Center on 9/11.
Ellen talked to Victor on the phone that morning, their last conversation before the attacks.
“It was September and we had a pool in the back yard and the pool wasn’t closed. So here he was telling me, ‘All right, remember to do this, remember to do that.’ He traveled all the time. I did that stuff all the time,” she said. “His parting words and my parting words were, ‘I love you.’”
