MINNESOTA – A random act of nature unfolded Tuesday when the most regal of American symbols, a bald eagle, perched atop a Twin Cities fire truck during a Sept. 11 ceremony.

The unscripted event added to the moment on the Main Street overpass above Hwy. 10 in Coon Rapids, where firefighters from various departments were paying their annual tribute to those who died 17 years ago in the coordinated terror attacks on Sept. 11, 2001, and to the emergency responders who rushed into harm’s way.

The article goes on to state the following:

“Look what landed on top of the aerial on 9/11,” on-the-scene Andover Fire Chief Jerry Streich said on a video post on the department’s Facebook page.

“Isn’t that unbelievable?” the narrator continued. “This eagle just landed on the aerial while we doing the 9/11 memorial. Phenomenal. We’re all set up here, so nobody forgets.”

After being on its perch for about 45 seconds, the eagle flew off to the east, in the direction of where the terrorists struck on American soil.
