As someone who is very non-religious, I couldn't watch the entirety of the video, but I am in awe of what your uncle had to endure, along with the many other rescue workers, and well, anyone in that general area on that day. It's unfathomable to even picture being in a situation like that, literally three feet from death, and coming through it relatively unscathed (physically).

Your uncle is to be commended. It takes a special person to go through what he did and talk about it later on in such a calm manner.
