52. EMT reports 3 loud explosions before WTC1 collapsed
EMT GREGG BRADY File No. 9110184

Setting up in WTC1, then setting up triage area in WTC7 lobby
At that time radios were working, cell phones we were having a lot of trouble with. We proceeded through a broken window that the Fire Department broke to lead access into the south tower. At that time plans changed and we transferred the triage area over to 7 World Trade
Center, in the lobby.

At that time, as they were speaking we heard a loud rumble and
we look up and we saw that the south tower was coming down. we ran underneath 2 World Financial Center and we came out in front. When
we came out in front it was just as dark as it was inside.

We proceeded to 3 World Financial Center, the American Express building They set up a triage area in that lobby. ...

At that time, when I heard the 3 loud explosions, I started running west on Vesey Street towards the water. At that time, I couldn't run fast enough. The debris caught up with me, knocked my helmet off. I tumbled and then eventually I started running again. I made it behind a building on North End Avenue. I set up a triage area in that corner
building and at that time I started treating patients.
