Falling through Fire (Paperback)
The true story of a firefighter and journalist, and his experiences of high-profile disasters during his 25 year career. One incident—early in his life—has a profound effect on him that carries to this day. Recounting his personal experience of the bomb in New York’s World Trade Center, the Paddington train crash, and decisions made about firefighters after the King’s Cross fire, Clifford reveals that despite his lengthy career and proximity to major disasters, he cannot escape the haunting memory of a three-year-old boy dying in his arms after a house fire just days before Christmas.
