Matawan Hero of United Flight 93 - Ed Felt

Local 9/11 victim Ed Felt is mentioned in this article in the Mansfield News Journal. Ed's biography is listed among the Heroes of United Flight 93.

Emergency dispatcher John Shaw took a 9-1-1 call at his station, according to a report in the Pittsburgh Tribune. United Airlines passenger Edward Felt, 41, of Matawan, N.J., connected with the nearest 9-1-1 service as the plane flew over.

"He told me two or three times that he was on the hijacked plane. I asked for his name. He said he was on United Flight 93 and he had used his cell phone to call 9-1-1," Shaw said. "We talked until we lost his carrier, but I held on just in case his phone found another carrier. Sometimes that happens. This time it never did."
