Eight helicopters had been sent for the mission, but only 5 arrived in operating condition., Since the military had advised that the mission be aborted if there were fewer than 6 helicopters, President Carter stopped it. Upon leaving, a helicopter collided with a transport plane and the men were killed.

1993 - At the age of 41 years old, Alfred was alive when on February 26th, a truck bomb exploded in the garage under the North Tower of the World Trade Center.
