Annotation: She was in World Trade Center Tower 1 when the plane hit. She began to evacuate through a maze of stairways and down 77 flights. When she reached the 3rd floor, the second tower collapsed and her way was blocked. She goes on to explain how she made out through the rubble and debris. 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.
