61. red flashes and explosions before WTC1 "collapsed"
CAPTAIN KARIN DESHORE
WTC1

"... SOMEWHERE AROUND THE MIDDLE OF THE WORLD TRADE CENTER THERE WAS THIS ORANGE AND RED FLASH COMING OUT INITIALLY IT WAS JUST ONE FLASH THEN
THIS FLASH JUST KEPT POPPING ALL THE WAY AROUND THE BUILDING AND THAT BUILDING HAD STARTED TO EXPLODE THE POPPING SOUND AND WITH EACH POPPING SOUND IT WAS INITIALLY AN ORANGE AND THEN RED FLASH CAME OUT OF THE BUILDING AND THEN IT WOULD JUST GO ALL AROUND THE BUILDING ON BOTH SIDES AS FAR AS COULD SEE THESE POPPING SOUNDS AND THE EXPLOSIONS WERE GETTING BIGGER GOING BOTH UP AND DOWN AND THEN ALL AROUND THE BUILDING WENT INSIDE AND TOLD EVERYBODY THAT THE OTHER BUILDING OR THERE WAS AN EXPLOSION OCCURRING UP THERE AND SAID THINK WE HAVE ANOTHER MAJOR EXPLOSION DONT KNOW IF WE ARE ALL GOING TO BE SAFE HERE TOLD THEM CANT FORCE YOU BUT DONT KNOW
IF WE ARE GOING TO BE SAFE HERE IM GOING TO TRY TO GET AS FAR AWAY FROM THIS BUILDING AS POSSIBLE UNBEKNOWN TO ME HALF BLOCK DOWN WAS THE WATER..."
I went inside and told everybody that there was an explosion occurring up there in the other building and I said I think we have another major explosion. I dont know if we are all going to be safe here. We took the two elderly ladies from the building with us, now 12 or so, going out of the building and to get down toward the water. So here these explosions are getting bigger and louder and I told everybody if this building totally explodes, Im going in the water. Just then, a small Jersey boat, entered the Marina.
We went down, carried everybody down.
The poor guy behind the steering wheel is saying I cant go anyplace, we are tied on. That is what saved over lives, because then this force came at us and hit us with everything. The boat was attempting to overturn and it kept hitting in the back against the pier. I was resigned to die. I have no clue how long this lasted.
