Worth a watch as well is the post-crisis interview with Bill, at 39:40

After listening to his possible escape plan and matching that with his physical limitations described in the People Magazine article, I really wish this poeTV entry had an eponymous tag we could link to...

Wow! RIP Bill.

There is a writeup of the incident here...

http://www.people.com/people/archive/article/0,,20082529,00.ht ml

"In the sealed studio with the gunman, the hostage and two technicians, Close quickly took charge. A 39-year broadcasting veteran who had lost both legs in a train accident when he was 12 years old, he became the middleman between police and the gunman. Talking by phone with a trained police negotiator, Close spoke cryptically, lulling Gwin into the belief that he was setting up the demanded live broadcast. "Call it stupidity or some kind of sixth sense, but I never thought I would be killed," says Close. "If anything, I thought I would get shot and it would screw up my vacation, which was due to start the next day." "
