Three firefighters who were on duty at Ground Zero during the 9/11 attacks have died on the same day from cancer.

Lieutenant Howard Bischoff, and firefighters Robert Leaver and Daniel Heglund,  died within hours of one another on Monday.

Thousands of people who helped the 9/11 rescue efforts have been diagnosed with illness, including cancer.

But doctors say it is unclear whether sickness can be linked to the attacks.
