FIREFIGHTER CHRISTOPHER FENYO FDNY

About a couple minutes after George came back to me is when the south tower from our perspective exploded from about midway up the building. We all turned and ran into the garage.
At that point a debate began to rage because the perception was that the building looked like it had been taken out with charges.

DEPUTY COMMISSIONER THOMAS FlTZPATRlCK FDNY

We looked up at the building straight up, we were that close. All we saw was a puff of smoke coming from about 2 thirds of the way up. Some people thought it was an explosion. I don't think I remember that. I remember seeing, it looked like sparkling around one specific layer of the building. I assume now that that was either windows starting to collapse like tinsel or
something. Then the building started to come down. My initial reaction was that this was exactly the way it looks when they show you those implosions on TV.

EMS LIEUTENANT CHARLES FRASER

We started to look up and we could see what looked like the top of this tower coming down at us, and then like a roller coaster, like a wooden roller coaster sound.
