NEW CANAAN, Conn. - A New Canaan woman who lost her son on Sept. 11, 2001, is upset that her son's voice is heard in a montage in the film "Zero Dark Thirty," according to a report in the New York Daily News.

The film, which tells the story of the 10-year hunt for Osama bin Laden, opens with a black screen and an audio montage of voice messages left by people trapped in the World Trade Center the morning of Sept. 11. One of the voices heard is that of Bradley Fetchet, the 24-year-old son of New Canaan's Mary and Frank Fetchet.

Mary Fetchet, who founded the New Canaan-based Voices of September 11th, told the New York Daily News that she was surprised to hear the voice of her son, who worked on the 89th floor of the South Tower. The audio was from a message that he left on the family's answering machine.

“Could you imagine going to a film that had a loved one who had died at the hands of terrorists and hearing the
voice of that person and not knowing you were going to hear it,” Mary Fetchet said to the New York Daily News. “I was shocked that I hadn’t been contacted to be asked for my permission to use Brad’s recording."
