135. What caused the damage on 5th and 6th floor of WTC1?
We got up to the fifth floor and there was severe damage. The ceilings had come down, some walls had caved in . Major sprinkler damage. Then we went to the sixth floor and did the
same t h i n g . Same sort of damage up there .
The south tower had collapsed. Now, it shook us and knocked a couple of guys down. Everybody ran to the stairwell.
We basically did an evacuation at that point and we started trying to get the people to keep going down the stairs.

When the tower started -- there was a big explosion that I heard and someone screamed that it was coming down and I looked away and I saw all the windows domino -- you know, dominoeing up and then come down.
