Crushed NYC fire truck lowered into Ground Zero memorial

Next year, an underground museum commemorating the attacks on 9/11 will open on the site that once held the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center in Manhattan. And it just got one of its first exhibitions.

A crushed 30-ton fire truck, draped in a white covering and American flags, was lowered by crane down into the site yesterday. The truck carried eleven firefighters to Ground Zero, all of whom died trying to save victims of the monumental terrorist attack. It's a fitting memorial to those who gave their lives to save others, and you can follow the jump to watch the brief clip from CBS News.
