Hostage | WBEZ
Skip to main content



Two stories about hostage situations that have very different endings. In the first, we hear about a 1971 hijacking, from the son of the pilot and the daughter of the hijacker. The second is about a teenager who brought a gun to school in 2003, and the police officer whose job it was to negotiate with him.
