Mohawk ironworkers remembered during New York ceremony to mark anniversary of 9-11 attacks

Many Mohawk ironworkers helped raise the original World Trade Centre Towers in New York City.

In 2001, they were also there to help clean up the remnants after the 9/11 attacks.

For some, that clean up has come at a great cost to their health.
