    William Rodriguez stole his hero story from Pablo Ortiz, a true hero who climbed to the 88th floor and used a crowbar to break open jammed doors and let people out. Mr. Ortiz saved dozens of lives and died when the north tower collapsed. Willie said "I'm the one who opened all the doors so that people could escape." In fact, survival rates on Willie's floors are no higher than on any other floors. The people were not locked in! Willie is a shameless fraud. Look at him pretending to be a godly man! Disgusting.
