32. P. Falluca, firefighter.... talks about rockets from the Woolworth Bldg.

http://graphics8.nytimes.com/packages/pdf/nyregion/2005...

You heard the explosion and everything, but I
saw the big fire ball. The stuff was coming down
across the street. It looked like a meteor came flying
across the street. They said it was the engine. I
don't know what it was. It was a big fireball or
something from the plane I guess, came from across the
street in front of our rig, and as we get out of the
rig, there's a cop, city police officer, in the street. He's telling us, "I'm getting out of here. I
just saw a rocket." He said he saw it come off the
Woolworth Building and hit the tower.
Now I see the two towers are hit. He says,
"I just saw a rocket hit that building. I'm getting
the F out of here. I'm getting out of here."
And we were like, holy -- I'm saying to
myself, I didn't even go in yet. They're shooting
rockets. I don't know what we're doing over here, but
after I watched it on the news a couple of times, I
could see it was a piece of the plane or something flew
off the building and made like a -- it looked -- if you
didn't see it actually come off the plane, you saw like
the stream of smoke coming from one building to the
other, but actually came from the tower, and they
didn't go the other way, so he swore he saw a rocket,
but at the time we thought it was a rocket. We
thought -- I thought we were under attack, and we were
under attack, naturally, but I thought we were under
attack in the city.
You know, I thought guys were in these
buildings with rockets shooting at the building, and we
made our way in.
