A tale of Canadian hospitality on 9-11

    Joel and Bobbie Porter of Cherry Hill ended up in New Brunswick, Canad when their plane was forced to land on September 11, 2001.

    When terrorists attacked on 9-11, all planes in the U-S were ordered to land immediately.

    For two travelers from Cherry Hill, that meant an unscheduled visit to Moncton in New Brunswick, Canada.

    Joel and Bobbie Porter have since returned twice to visit the couple who put them up.

    Michael Richard LeBlanc, a radio reporter from the CBC in Moncton tells us their story.
