A giant package was lowered into a hole on the spot where the Twin Towers fell in New York 10 years ago.

Inside, a Ladder Company 3 fire truck that carried 11 first responders to the North Tower of the World Trade Center on September 11th, 2001.
All 11 firefighters onboard the truck died when the tower collapsed.

The truck will become part of the National September 11th Memorial & Museum currently still under construction.

Members of the New York Fire Department watched as the 60-thousand pound truck was lowered into the exhibition space.

The museum will be dedicated at this year's 10th anniversary ceremonies, but won't open officially until 2012.
