69. firefighters leaving WTC1 find lobby blasted
FIREFIGHTER ROY CHELSEN -firefighters leaving WTC1 find lobby blasted

we proceeded in Tower 1. I think the revolving doors were kind of
busted up, so I think we went through a window. At that point we were still not sure that it was a plane that had hit the tower. There was some talk from the civilians coming down that a plane hit. The consensus was that it was a small plane;

We made our way up to 29 or 30. We were again resting again. All of a sudden just -- I don't know if the sequence is right, but everything went black, and all the power went out. There was just this rumbling. I felt like it went on forever. Someone came down and tell us to evacuate. From there it was just asses and elbows. We all just started running. I didn't even have my mask on anymore. We just dropped
everything. Actually between 20 and 30.
We got down to the lobby. The lobby is like gone.
