Imagine being your first day on the job, just starting as firefighter or as police officer, and imagine this being your first call

Everyone who went through that smoke either have problems with their breathing, dead, or suffering from cancer right now. 18 Years 🙏🏾

“The fire door on (floor) 76 was locked” I wonder if more people would’ve lived if it was open

3:42 "the fire door on 76 was locked" the anger in that guys voice makes me think a lot of people on that floor didn't make it out.

Awe that lady was so nice she said “ does anybody need a water?”
This footage is incredible. Makes me feel like I’m in the shoes of these people at the time. So sorry for all the people who were affected in some way by 9/11.

Never forget.

This was slightly before social media took off. Just imagine if this had happened today . Twitter and Facebook and youtube and instagram would be flooded.
The scariest day of my life and I was only 9 years old when this happened. Thank god my dad was at his home when this happened.

The man stopped to look at the camera and said, "and the fire-door on 76 was locked" so I looked it up and it's true, it was locked ...but why was it locked? :(
Thank you to the people who sacrificed their lives to save people, and im sorry for those who lost their loved ones to this tragic accident. Live knowing that they are finally at peace.
This is what people need to watch if they want to truly empathize with the victims of this tragedy. Just imagine being the one holding the camera in these clips. Everyone around you, at the wrong place and time, just trying to survive. The emotions are palpable, yet I can only imagine how it felt on the dusty ground of Hell on Earth that day.
Im only 13 so i wasnt alive for this but i cried through most of it , i cant imagine living the day fr

I'm sorry for the people that were affected by this...

*"Remember 9/11.... "*
Inhaling dust from the buildings can give you a rare type of “cancer”
Apos Eastwood
Apos Eastwood:
So now please imagine this kind of stuff happening on a daily basis in your home city. Not exactly planes crashing into towers but bombs destroying the roof over your head, killing your friends and family.
Imagine terror all around.
That is how many people live, just now, because they are born in the wrong countrys at the wrong century.
Think of that, considering how you feel about 9/11, considering there are refugees who need your help because of terror, nowadays, not years ago

I was in second grade of high school on that day. Learning in class at the very moment when that horrible event took place. After arriving at home i turned on my tv and the news about this kept popping up on the screen all day long.. i cried even tho i didn't live in america but asia....

I worked there until the year before it happened. That restaurant people are running into @ 1:45 is somewhere I frequently went for lunch.

All the people's left behind in the smoke. Imagine if a kid got left back there!
3:40 "and the fire door on 76 was locked", I can't imagine the horror that these people suffered. They did from smoke inhalation or the building collapsing on them, or they had to choose between burning to death or jumping off the building. Rest in peace to the beautiful souls who died that day. :(

I'm not sure if it was my grandma I saw in the video but she told me everyone was just running with confusion not knowing were to go and that she saw people jumping down from the twin towers hoping they will not die because there only choices were jump down or burn and she told me she saw a fire fighter carrying a woman but the woman made it but the fire fighter didn't because a big piece of glass collapsed on him but now that we know this happend we just need to appreciate this wasn't us and praying for the others that tried to fight back but couldn't I know I wrote a lot but thank you to the one's that read all the way to the bottom and I'm sorry if one of your loved one's died in this day but I guess have a nice day 😢
My uncle said it was like breathing the dust from a full vacuum.

I was working in NJ at that time. We didn’t know what was going on. When they hit the Pentagon, I stood up from my desk all freaked out, telling everyone OMG we’re at War. We all left work and there was so much traffic. Took me over 2 hrs to get home when usually takes 20 minutes.
Douglas Bollinger
Douglas Bollinger:
With 9/11 being tomorrow, I always find myself looking at 9/11 photos and videos. I can't imagine the hell people went through that day. I look at the survivors in this (and other) videos and think to myself, "I wonder what these people are doing today." I hope they're able to live normal lives even though that day will constantly be on their minds. God Bless The USA!!!

watching this in 07-11-2019 : ( Sad for those people who lost their family members : (
The air that everyone was running from was toxic and it is so crazy seeing those people covered in ash and breathing in all that stuff, too. To think of all the people who died that day is terrible, but the unknown number of victims who got cancer from this is also devastating

This has to be the most unbelievable/epochal disaster ever caught on film. It's like if the destruction of the colossus of Rhodes were filmed, or the destruction of Pompeii, or the actual sinking of the Titanic.
