Remembering President Bush's visit to Sarasota on 9/11

Tonight on 10 Tampa Bay, hear from a student and teacher who were there.

SARASOTA COUNTY, Fla. — Editor's Note: This story has been updated.

Americans will never forget the terror attacks that took place on September 11, 2001.

Nineteen years later, most still remember where they were and what they were doing when they heard about the tragedy.

Then-President George W. Bush was visiting Emma E. Booker Elementary School in Sarasota County. He was participating in a reading demonstration when the second plane hit the World Trade Center.

Our camera crews caught the moment a secret service agent whispered in the president’s ear to inform him of the attacks.

Today 10 Tampa Bay talked virtually with a teacher and student who were at Booker Elementary when this all unfolded. Hear from them Friday at 6 p.m. on 10 Tampa Bay.
