Annotation: He is from London and had experienced terrorist bombings from only two street away, but he states that nothing prepared him for what happened on September 11. He was one of the last to leave his floor after the planes hit. He describes how he got away from the World Trade Center after the collapse. This BBC online website also has links to the details of the four hijackings, a short synopsis of the World Trade Center disaster, photographs of the disasters, a list of the Twin Towers tenants, and a timeline of events.
Excerpt: Wednesday morning approx 6:15am: After the morning's events yesterday I thought I had almost seen it all. I was in a windowless sealed server room lab at the core of the 8th floor, and in all the din of the machines all I felt were a couple judders.
