Aya Nurse on the COVID-19 Frontline Reunites With New York City Firefighter who Rescued Her From a Burning Building 37 Years Ago

June 17, 2020 | Aya Media Buzz ,

When Aya traveler, Deirdre Taylor, was preparing to leave her Virginia home to fight Covid-19 in New York on the front lines, she made sure to pack a possession that she held dear for over three decades: a front-page newspaper article.

But this wasn’t just any newspaper article. It was an article documenting Taylor’s rescue from a burning New York City apartment by a firefighter in 1983. She was only 4 years old at the time. The picture on the front-page article shows a young Taylor with the man who saved her, Eugene Pugliese.

Read the full CNN article and watch the interview with Anderson Cooper about how they reunited amidst the ongoing pandemic.
