One day that will remain unforgettable for Sam Riegel and his wife is without doubt September 11, 2001, when America was plunged into mourning by a terrorist attack that targeted the World Trade Center. Riegel and Tran watched as the southern tower of the gigantic structure was transformed into rubble, killing 2,996 people and injuring more than 6,000 others. Infrastructure and $10 billion worth of property was also destroyed during the four coordinated terrorist attacks organized by the Islamic terrorist group known as al-Qaeda against the United States of America. In the months following the attacks, more and more people succumbed to cancer and respiratory diseases, which were regrettably caused by the effects of the attack. The cloud of dust created by the collapse of the building enveloped Sam and his wife, but they made it out safely and found refuge in Battery Park. From there they watched in fear as the North Tower collapsed.
The horrible sight was captured on camera by Sam Riegel and used in many documentaries about the attack.
Sam Riegel’s height and body measurements have not really been published, but most of his fans believe that he is only a few inches taller than five feet. Nonetheless, the dubbing artist’s post on Twitter in February 2018, which reads “6 feet y’all”, indicates that he is up to 1.80 m tall. But then he might be tweeting about something or someone else. Whatever the case, we can confirm that he is in great shape.
