Todd became known for his last words, "Let's Roll" which he told his wife after explaining he was going to try to take back the plane. The plane was one of four that were hijacked by Islamic Terrorists from al-Qaeda, the other three were crashed into major infrastructures World Trade Center and Pentagon. If not for the brave actions of Todd Beamer and the other passengers who fought to take back the plane more lives would have been lost. In total, 2,997 people were killed in the attacks and another 6,000 were injured. Estimates put the damage caused by infrastructure and property damage at $10 billion dollars.
