Statue of a 9/11 Flight Attendant

Field review by the editors.

Fort Pierce, Florida

CeeCee Ross Lyles was a flight attendant on United Airlines Flight 93, the one that crashed in Pennsylvania on 9/11. Although she lived in Ft. Myers when she died, she grew up in Fort Pierce and was a police officer there for six years. She switched careers only ten months before the terror attacks. With four children under her care, she reportedly wanted a less dangerous profession.

CeeCee is known for her phone calls to her husband from the doomed flight, describing the intent of the passengers to retake the plane.

CeeCee's statue was unveiled in 2003. She has been rendered life-size and stands on the ground, so she seems small for a bronze statue. She wears her United Airlines uniform and looks out over the Intracoastal Waterway; a pretty and peaceful spot.
