Annotation: He worked near the World Trade Center and heard the plane just before the crash. He waited to evacuate until after the collapse of Tower 2. He describes walking through the darkness and the trouble he had breathing. He is from India and had never seen Manhattan before his odyssey in getting back home to New Jersey. 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: I saw history with naked eyes today. And fate just stared me in the face and made me realize how small we are. Thank God, for having spared us from any harm. And let us not forget the souls that have departed.
