3. Fireman Sean Brown- appearance of explosion in lobby/basement area
prior to collapse of WTC1

Firemen evacuating WTC1 after WTC2 collapsed
Sean Brown

The Maydays started coming in to vacate the
north tower. So as we started going down.
At that point, we proceeded down. Most of
the civilians -- we didn't see any civilians at that
point. It was mainly firefighters. Made it down to
the lobby. There were about maybe 30 firefighters that
were with us. Made it to the lobby, and
the lobby was like a war zone. All the windows were blown out, and the command post wasn't there.
we made it to the corner of West and Vesey when the building came down. That was myself, and Firefighter Tim Marmion and
Firefighter Pete Felluca.

At that point, attention was called upon me
to go back and get -- there was a chief that they
pulled out, so I ran over to grab that chief, and
proceeded to move to pull him towards the ambulance.
We got him the help he needed.
I have medical training, so I figured I would
do my best to help him out, and put him in the
ambulance. Then the building totally collapsed, and I
would say I was on West and Barclay. The guys from the
company were on West and Vesey.

(Did WTC1 partially collapse and then later totally collapse as he seems to describe???)
