Remember The World Trade Center
This article from the Guardian features excerpts of emergency workers who witnessed the atrocities at the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001. Firefighter Maureen McArdle-Schulman tells what she saw when she arrived at the WTC:
"Somebody yelled something was falling. We didn't know if it was desks coming out. It turned out it was people coming out, and they started coming out one after the other ... we saw the jumpers coming. We didn't know what it was at first, but then the first body hit and then we knew what it was. And they were just like constant ... I was getting sick. I felt like I was intruding on a sacrament. They were choosing to die and I was watching them and shouldn't have been. So me and another guy turned away and looked at a wall and we could still hear them hit."The estimates of the number of people who forced to jump or were blown out of the World Trade Center ranges from fifty to two hundred.
