A former manager at the Sept. 11 memorial in New York says he was fired for questions about the safety at one of the most security-conscious place in the U.S. Thomas Cancelliere sued saying he was fired for telling his bosses the water in the fountains carried bacteria that can cause sickness and that the exit gates were too narrow to accommodate a quick evacuation. He sued the National Sept. 11 Memorial and Museum on Friday saying he was fired after being facilities director from November 2010 to last month. Cancelliere contends he was given lip service when he raised the issues with higher-ups, being told his concerns were being addressed or they weren't his responsibility. The memorial says he was canned because he failed to meet performance standards.
