Saving the day is all in thefamily for Lance Orton, the T-shirt vendor credited with first telling cops about the bomb-packed SUV parked in the heart of Times Square.
His sister is a disaster response expert: Dr. Gina Orton 54, of Virginia, works as a psychiatrist with the Justice Department, counseling law enforcement officers traumatized by the unthinkable.
“My brother could have been killed,” Gina Orton said, “and socould have thousands of people. … It’s a horrifying thought.”
She’s not surprised her brother acted the way he did. After all, he did such a good job looking out for her when they were kids, why shouldn’t he now be looking out for all New York?
