Uchitel's fiance -- Andy O'Grady -- was in the South Tower of the World Trade Center when it was struck by a plane. A then unknown Uchitel searched tirelessly for O'Grady ... but he didn't survive.

TMZ spoke with Uchitel last night ... who told us, "This is the biggest news we have received as a country in almost 10 years. Now we Americans finally have justice and maybe we can all sleep just a bit better at night. "

Uchitel continued, "Andy would be so honored to know he's part of history as an American hero for his sacrifice on that day. He's celebrating for sure right now with all those he died with and that makes me so happy."
