108. What caused the facade of WTC2 to separate, or the big tilt
Edited on Mon Aug-22-05 11:24 PM by philb
CHIEF FIRE MARSHAL LOUIS GARCIA
WTC2
I heard something, and I thought the facade and just the faade of the south tower was coming down, and one of the firefighters near me was saying holy shit, and I think he felt the building was going to collapse. I wasn't convinced of that at first. I thought maybe it was
just some facade falling. All of a sudden there was a rumble and you see the building starting to collapse.At that point I ran north on West Street as fast as I could possibly run.

LIEUTENANT GARY GATES
WTC2
I looked up, and the building exploded, the building that we were very
close to, which was one tower. The whole top came off like a volcano.
I'm looking at the face of it, and all we see is the two sides of the building just blowing out and coming apart like this, as I said, like the top of a volcano.



RONALD COYNE EMT WTC2

At that point I just heard a THUNDEROUS SOUND AND LOOKED up AND SAW THE BUILDING START TO TOPPLE START TO SWAY, AND IT WAS SWAYING OUR WAY AND WE JUST YELLED RUN AND TRIED TO RUN AS FAST AS COULD AND SAW


and how could a tilted top section cause a uniform pancake?

and what caused the mushroom clouds out the top of the buildings?
