58. Where did the plane debris and bodies end up? How many of the
Edited on Thu Aug-18-05 10:39 PM by philb
bodies reported next to the buildings and in streets were from the plane versus jumpers? Was it similar for both buildings?


On the morning of September 11th we were operating a box up on Church Street Near Canal. There was an odor of gas in the area. While we were out operating, we heard the first plane coming in. I turned around and I watched the plane crash into the north tower. ...

It was at that time when I saw the second plane hit the building. I called a mayday. I told them the second plane hit the south tower of the building. I wasn't sure which floors it was, but I knew it hit the upper floors of the south tower. Debris was falling, body parts were falling. We ducked for cover inside Engine 7, but the rig was getting bombarded with debris from the building, debris from the plane. We saw bodies crash landing right next to the rig. So we couldn't stay there.

We couldn't go through the front of the north tower
because there were too many bodies on the ground.

we had to go underneath the overpass to avoid debris falling from the south tower and bodies. People were jumping.

were the bodies the firefighters described all jumpers or from the plane? or both?
Is it clear there were people on both planes?
and that they were the people who boarded Fl 11 and 175?
