About 160 firefighters have climbed the Sky Tower in Auckland to honour their New York counterparts who died in the September 11 terror attacks.
Today marks the 15th anniversary of the attacks, and New Zealand is one of the first countries to pay tribute.
Firefighters traveled from around New Zealand to climb the Sky Tower’s 1100 steps, many of them wearing their full uniforms.
The American flag at the US Embassy and Consulate in Wellington has been lowered in remembrance today.
