BARRETT HIRSCH EMS

they were trying to get things reorganized after the first blast they -- I know they started some of the crews and somebody over in the other tower

Then I noticed, like, the top of the tower seemed to shoot up a little bit and start to fall down a little bit. that's when Bill Simon and I just bolted in towards one of the other overpasses just to get some cover

FIREFIGHTER KEVIN HOWE

I'm hearing like a rumble and I'm looking up and I'm seeing the antenna start to do this type of nonsense, swaying a little bit it seemed, and sure enough the building was coming down. That was tower number 1, the north tower. As it started coming down, we saw this ferocious amount of black cloud, a brown cloud that was chasing everybody.
