Excerpt: Building number 7, 28th floor. I heard a loud explosion followed by an earthquake type shaking. I immediately ran to the southern window, which faced the northern World Trade Center tower and I saw debris falling everywhere. I then looked up and saw a crater sized hole in the northern tower. Along with that, there was fire coming out all ends. And I saw individuals jumping, free falling for about 5 seconds to the ground -- they just fell from top to bottom.
