The man who said “you don’t know what we’re breathing in” is so important. Not a lot of people think about those details during a desperate time like this, and so many survivors ended up succumbing to illnesses from what they inhaled. His mindfulness in that moment probably saved the people around him big time.
@tiniente abanil Indeed it was. In fact it was during the center's construction that the asbestos laws were passed, so that only the first 40 floors were insulated with Asbestos.
Huge explosion no plane.
@tiniente abanil it was band in the UK 2 years before 9/11 very Dangerous material
It's nice to see that instead of helping himself, the reporter looked out for others, so did the camera man. I thank them both and everyone else who helped each other out on that day.
@Dennis Micheals I agree
@Dennis Micheals you were right saying “people.”Not everyone in america is an american.The country became divided then.The folks who did this were Muslim “extremists.”Not every Muslim is an extremist.Many Muslims who love everyone were attacked because others made presumptions.The country known as the United States is divided because some choose to allow others to think for them, whether it’s the truth or not.
People or should I say Americans were a lot nicer and caring then ..country wasn't devided like it is today
@BananaSkin Development No you are right there would be a difference seeing how 80% of our generation wouldnt even handle watching a shoe fall from the wtc during then. I guess we were built different but I agree with you. That day was terrifying for all parties involved.
That what people were like back then gee. Today it seem like we will be selfish but in reality everyone will still help eachother in serious scenarios.
horrifying how people in the north towers watched the south tower as it fell.
For all I’ve read about it, most of people had no idea the other tall was falling. The firefighters at the lobby didn’t. Tips on readings: “fall and rise”, “102 minutes” and “the only plane in the sky”.
Worst part is that people where told to stay in the tower even after the first one was hit. Not sure if they all stayed after the second plane hit if they did a lot of people could've been saved
@V I I watched it on TV. Make me numb.
Some people even recognized coworkers as they fell from the towers.
Horrifying how millions watched them collapse
it blows my mind that this is a historical event and didn’t just happen yesterday. it still feels so fresh
I wasn't born yet to even hear or witness this but seeing these videos I could only imagine the horror
@Chris Anderson rest in peace for all the ones they life's. This is literally heartbreaking and disturbing and no one should feel such horror movie.
When I watch footage like this it’s like being there again. The panic everyone had during this and the anger afterwards makes me so sad. 20 years of anger towards Iraq when they had nothing to do with it.
@Revolution Yeah 😢
@Sofia Lorido I feel so sorry for all of them
The reporter is so calm saying “Huge explosion coming down on us” than the next second he’s panicking saying “WE BETTER RUN”
he cannot be panicked on camera bcoz he has to show the world whats happening
That was the moment he realized “That’s not an explosion.. THE WHOLE BUILDING’S COMING DOWN!!”
Thats a classic 🤣 How quickly he dropped the goofy news man -voice
I think he was still calm for a second because he thought it was just an explosion which for the most part is still isolated. Then he realized the building was collapsing and start to panic. Rightfully so.
@MasterCobraGaming Ik that, but like, idk how the heck he was calm saying huge explosion coming down on us
My dad, Roshan Singh, and my aunt, Khamladai Singh, both worked in the world trade center and passed away this day. I don't remember much about my dad because I was only 4 years old when this happened, but my mom tells me that he was a kind and honest man. Growing up she used to talk about him a lot and would break down crying because she missed him so much. She never remarried because she said that he was the only man that she was meant to be with. Rest easy pops.
I'm so sorry for your loss, your Dad and Aunt did not deserve to die that day, I was in school when this happened and I could not believe it.
Rip blame ur government
That's unfortunate sorry rip
I was a newborn when this happened. My dad was a first responder(NYPD ESU) along with many close family friends. I’ve lost many close family friends from conditions caused by breathing in the smoke and debris. It’s truly heartbreaking and I don’t understand how I would’ve dealt with it if I was a teenager. My dad was there, barely survived and was there every single day during the clean up process. My mom tells me stories of how I never let him hold me when he came home after being out 19 hours a day. It’s heart breaking and I can’t comprehend the terror people in my city felt. My parents tell me how the next day, American flags were sold out, people were out giving bottles of water to first responders, hugging them, crying to them. How people, black or white, democrat or republican were together, unified.
@Vj Long yes, that’s exactly what it was like. Much more peaceful. There was more happiness and less stress. My daughter was born in 2002, and I wish she could have experienced it too.
@LauraRN713 I was born in late 2005 so I obviously wasn’t alive back then, but I wish I got to see America back then. I bet it felt like everyone was closer and realized at the end of the day we are all people and we should look after each other and set aside our differences. Especially that day.
@LauraRN713 You're welcome man😄
@Ryzen thank you so much. That means a lot coming from a younger person 😊
@LauraRN713 I can't imagine how bad it was for you and everyone, I hope everyone is okay and God bless them all including you. Hope you feel better.
I was born after this happened, and honestly it just feels unreal. It’s just hard to believe that something this terrifying actually happened - same with things like the holocaust. It’s just simply horrific.
It was very real, even if you were nowhere near it. You remember where you were. I was in college in Virginia, about 2 hrs from DC where plane also hit. Was walking through campus and noticed that everyone was stopped and huddled around TVs, no one was doing anything else. Walked up to a TV, on the screen see people in others countries on the news, saying "It wasn't us, we didn't attack you" and then the footage of the planes hitting, over and over and over, because you have to remember, at first no one knew what was going on. No one went to class or went to get food, all we did was stand and stare at the TVs, often just with whoever was at the first TV you got to, strangers. For hours. Waiting to find out why it happened, who did it, were we suddenly at war? And then yes, in the coming days and weeks, everyone put flags in their windows or on their cars, everyone was so kind to each other, differences all seemed petty in the face of the tragedy.
Yeah it’s so weird I don’t see the world in the same light since discovering 9/11 and holocaust
It's hard to belive past events that happend when you weren't born.
Something catastrophic like this will happen at some point in your lifetime. It's an unfortunate reality but it's true.
Ikr sometimes I can't believe this actually happened
“KEEP COMING, GLENN, COME ON, YOU CAN DO IT’Made me weep. The love we had for each other. Where did it go?
@Aaa EEE not all coworkers are friends. I genuinely have coworkers I'm not friends with, but I'm still concerned for their safety
Do you not have friends?
Politics politics at the time were very eccentric IE both political Parties in the middle But then Obama became president and then everyone went crazy
This is the only video that really captures the sound of the collapse, most others are really far away or really poor quality. The sound is truly staggering.
@Internet User link?
@Internet User do you have a link?
Another better quality one is the footage a French camera man caught from the lobby of the North Tower. It’s fairly HD considering the technology of the time, what really gets me about that audio is that you can hear this distinctive sound of like a thousand windows shattering (or something like that). I can’t hear it in other videos.
This camera man did an incredible job. #1 rule of filming any significant event is never turn the camera off as everything is unpredictable. Documentation is important, props to this guy.
@cool guy agreed, but you want to capture the moment for future generations to see
So you'd really prioritise that footage over someone's life. Think for a moment how selfish that is.
He just stood there, and filmed instead of running with others
Also this like dang 5:14
I love how supportive the news guy is for other people around him and the camera guy as he continues to encourage him to keep running and checking behind him to make sure he's still going as they run from all the smoke
I wasn’t born yet but my heart goes out to anyone who had to experience this trauma. I’m genuinely so sorry.
My heart sunk when I saw the dust cloud behind everyone. The guy encouraging Glenn to keep running is a really good person, especially with the fact that he had the bravery to record the tower falling before running to safety.
The horror that was witnessed that day, will never be forgotten, may all whom were killed rest in peace and anyone reading this who survived that horror, you are some of the bravest people ever.Thank you to all first responders, if you helped with this horrific event or not.Everyone have a blessed a day/night.
Twenty years later, it's still mind-blowing and heartbreaking.
Yes ! I was born 8 months before all of this happened and I still am learning more and more about it . It’s so heart breaking ! 😫😫
@J Son God bless you too!
@Anna Bennett Thank you. Indeed I am. God bless.
@Anna Bennett I genuinely don't think they thought the building would come down. I just think they thought it would kill a load of people before the fire was put out.
As an 11 year old girl, I truly cannot hold back my tears. I’m Australian and I’m really sad. May all the lives lost in this horrific event be in peace. My family am I were talking about this.
@I come in peace How/what about my comments? Sorry again, I am just having a bit of trouble knowing which way you are taking them.
Thank you for your sympathy, but I wish you hadn't seen this so young.
@Aw 2 I'm 16 years old and i'm so devastated by your comment's formulation
RIP to all the victims, this must’ve been absolutely terrifying. I hope that their friends and family are all doing well.
Imagine being in the North Tower and seeing the South Tower collapse and knowing that the same might happen to you and you are stuck inside. RIP to all who died that day and thank you to all first responders who ran into danger so that others may live.
Glem (Marty Glembotzky) is a goddamn professional, how he didn't drop the camera and run when they saw the building falling on them is beyond me.
GET IN HERE MARTY
I hear glenn
He is cameraman. Their species is faster, stronger and more intellegent than us humans. They can survive in most places in a lot of different circumstanses. This beautiful example of their species is obviously alpha, even tho there are even stronger members of this spieces....
@Oscar Pineda I would just think your survival instincts would kick in and drop the camera without thinking.
Those cameras are incredibly heavy I can’t imagine running with easily upwards of 25 lbs or more
Major respect for him for yelling to his cameraman instead of running off and abandoning him
I'd have told him to ditch the camera.
@iCON Pepelepew what's it called?
@Vanilla Earth its on Hulu
@iCON Pepelepew do you have a link to the new documentary?
And the fact that Welles Crowther saved so many people. instead of taking his time to evacuate. he would get people down to evacuation, go back up more than 20 flights of stairs, and get more people down. More people need to know about him, because he saved so much people in this event, and died in the process.
Oh my god! Thank you! I’ve been trying to remember his name for ages. All I kept thinking was the man with the red bandanna. Continued Rest In Peace Welles Crowther!! You did a brave thing that day!!
I wasn't even born at that time but seeing these videos I can't can't imagine being there at that time it's happening...God it gives me chills everytime I watch this video of people either falling from the world trade center or people crying while running away or even when the plane crushes on the tower it breaks my heart seeing how terrible and cruel our world is...rest in peace to all those people that died that day and a huge thank you to all the people that helped at that time,reporters firefighters policemen everyone that offered a helping hand.
My respect to all the paramedics the police and firefighters who went back into the life threatening dust to save others
I have nothing but respect for all the first responders. I don't think I would have had the courage to charge in while others ran. Absolute bravery.
R.I.P to all the people that jumped out of the building, burned alive, died on the plane, and to the brave souls that tried saving as many people as they could.
@They Race Me So Hard What would George Bush even gain from this?
@Bonz Coltee their throats were slit bruh…
There wasn't anybody on those planes it wasn't even a plane that hit the Pentagon what I want to know is what did they do with the people
@Big Bear the pilots get what they deserved cause it wasn't on accident cause who flies a plane into a building on accident
A truly awful day. Even after all this time, my heart goes out to the Americans that passed in this horrid event and their families. Love from Canada, you will forever be our brothers. 🇨🇦❤️🇺🇸
Just gives me chills every time. Feel so helpless for those lives lost. Never forget
I'm, literally crying. so much people were in that building . My heart mourns for love ones that were lost that day.
I will never forget how blue and calm the sky was that day...a beautiful setting for such a horrific tragedy...
It’s honestly hard to believe this happened. This seems straight out of a horror movie… Goodness what a terrible day. I have no words. May the victims Rest In Peace and may the families find comfort, 20 years later.
Straight from a videogame
Still long story short I just want to know which historical event was worse 9/11 or Pearl Harbor.
Hey guys seriously I just like history in school I thought it was the easiest subject. In Middle School and High School.
Yea I'm afraid religion is real, and the reality is as long as it exists, acts of terror like these will never end
@Sam Smith You're talking about low intelligence? How about some reading comprehension Sammy? It would really help you and you wouldn't waste both our time.
I am 13 years old and seeing this really makes my heart break. I never knew people would be running for their lives or just THIS in general. I want the world to get along.😔
seeing those police officers and firefighters, paramedics all in work still standing there directing people to safety meanwhile struggling to breathe themselves...bless them. heartbreaking. Thank god for the ballsy camera men to continue to document things as it was happening, its not easy. We have all this footage (other ones included) because of people like them.
my uncle was on the way to a meet someone at one of the towers and as soon as he saw the smoke he started running. im very thankful that he is alive, and may the people that lost their lives rest in piece 🕊❤️
After watching the movie “World Trade Center” a movie about two survivors of 9/11 (The 18th and 19th men taken from the debris, John and Will) this is genuinely making me cry. The fact my mom would’ve been on the second plane is making me cry so hard, making me feel as if I shouldn’t even live. RIP Aunt Jessy, a passenger of the second plane.
@The monke sooo funny man. I almost forgot to laugh.
0:12 certified hood classic
It was touching to see that even in a total panic, he still cared enough about his cameraman to make sure he wasn't left behind and to motivate him to keep going.
@Talking Toast He was possibly wearing 15kg of camera equipment (the equivalent of carrying a 3 year old toddler on your shoulder while running )Well i don't think the presenter could have helped him since they were both running and if they stop they would have been engulfed in the smoke,debris and more dangerous things coming down
@Talking Toast A lot of it his hooked up to the same system. It's not easy to dismantle and it's not fast either.
The camera guy looked like they were carrying a lot of heavy equipment, some of the stuff they put down at one point. Would be nice if the guy maybe helped out a bit
Joe Mamma he’s like bro take my clubs
@Ben Fisher A lot of people don't really think of it but the person behind the camera is probably not just co-workers but friends with the reporter.
my heart is with everyone involved in 9/11, truly heartbreaking.
This is legit the 1st time I’ve ever experienced a panick attack from watching a video. I was 10 when 9/11 happened. I lived in CT- I didn’t know why the teachers were crying or why they made the entire school go to the auditorium- i didn’t understand why at 11am my mom picked me up from school when everyday I got out at 3. I didn’t ask any questions as to why everyone was on panicking - I just listened and did as I was told and observed the silent, fast paced, organized frenzy of adults.…all I remember hearing was broadcasting from the radio - of a monotone but serious voice talking about the towers falling down. How grimace all the faces were standing around. I did not understand just what was occurring - but I understand something happened….my mom didn’t talk to me in the car ride home from school. I’m now 30 … and Looking back on that day… I realize just how quiet fear is and how LOUD silence is. Today is the very 1st time I’ve witnessed actual, non edited news anchor footage of the events that took place that day- the news puts forth so much emphasis on “The twin towers” - that one would think 9/11 was a day when the building collapsed……………………….. but my GOD- to see actual people running for their lives, black clouds of smoke swallowing them - I felt their terror . And I am so sorry I didn’t see THIS beyond the headlines 💔💔💔💔💔💔💔💔
You had a panic attack?
Strange story. I was watching a heart-wrenching documentary on 9/11 by myself out in the living room. I said that's horrible! I'm sorry for the people. I welcome people who lost their lives here. I felt something cold move past me and the sofa became cold. I felt something hold my hand almost. I didn't think it was scary and I still don't. I thank God every day that I wasn't alive during that time, and that I had that experience. After that I had dreams about this lady, who had a cold hand. I believe it was someone who had passed. I sometimes say hello to her while watching something about 9/11 and I'll hear something like the sofa squeak like someone's sitting down. Amazing what God can do.
My heart still aches & races as I watch this. The reporter, NJ Burkett suffered debilitating PTSD. God bless the victims, their families & our extraordinary Mayor Giuliani.😔🙏🏼
the whole video is disgustingly sad but the part that ate at me was the firetrucks going straight towards the towers not knowing if they'd ever come back out. what amazing people, nothing but respect for all the brave people that tried to save everyone. rip
ALLAHU AKBAR LELELELEELELELELELELE
It breaks my heart that so many people forget this. That cops, firefights, and emts are seen as such horrible people. To get might not have good bedside manners all the time but this is stuff they see on a constant basis. People dying around them and not being able to do anything…
@Pecan TheJelly oh my god, that makes you proud and horribly depressed at the same time 💔
Yes watching them disappear into the smoke and debris, god awful.
Ok. It was horrific.Why doesnt anyone talk about the other building that collapsed. The soloman building?Even our bbc in britain reported on the collapse....while it was still standing.🤣🤣 It fell on its own footprint, exactly like a pro demolition, exactly like twin towers did.
It’s amazing that N.J. Burkett (the reporter) stopped reported and took his time to help the people around him. And this camera man is one of the best. They saw the horror and the unexpected and didn’t turn the camera off. Not to mention how supportive the reporter was
I’ve never seen this footage. It’s so interesting to see from the perspective of a person on the street but absolutely terrifying.Imagine the massive amounts of footage we would have if this had happened more recently. Everybody has cell phone cameras and I’m sure people in the towers would be filming and giving their thoughts as it happened, not realizing how bad it’s about to get. I think it’s better that we don’t have footage like that. It’d definitely be even more horrific than what we have seeing it from the perspective of a person about to die.
There’s be A lot of censoring going on that’s for , it would slow down rescues to I think, people would be live-streaming down the stairs , some would be very acutely informed with the wireless internet given access to websites in quick speed that can work on new types of technologies , the video would be clearer certainly and I think and hope new safety protocols would be in place for elevators and stairwells maybe even a better helicopter escape route as well. Truthfully it was such a destructive attack and physically morphing event that even today it may collapse again , the towers were built in the 60s I believe so they really didn’t have a real modern appreciation for modern building safety codes and that is continually improving even recently there was that fire in up where hundreds died . I’d like to hope more people would survive today but if it were the same building same structural faults. I just can’t imagine this happening today , today is the result of 911;, Iraq-afghan wars , isis. Now with covid and people working from homes I hope not many would be Inside. This was a very sad ordeal all around and tor me almost unbelievable.
May those firefighters and law enforcement officers and paramedic who died trying to save other rest in peace.
I was in high school in the 9th grade when this happened. We will never forget this day. God be with the people who lost their lifes.
You mean the god who watched it all, the almighty Higher Being?
To this day it still make me cry knowing so many people never made it out. 😭😭😭
One of the saddest moments in American history, none of us alive the time will ever forget...
I know how this feels my dad was working in the tower when it happened and he texted me this “ son you were the best thing I could ever have tell mom your brothers I love them” I cried when I saw the message
@zlinedavid well we were brokers at the time but not gonna lie
Not calling you out directly, but this was 2001…text messaging existed, but it was not common. I realize that this was NYC and some of the VERY early Blackberries would have been more common than in some places, but they weren’t overly common. The majority of cell phones were for business use and most people still had land lines at home. Again, not saying it’s impossible, but unless you both happened to be NYC execs/brokers at the time, the odds that both of you had text-capable devices are very, very slim.
My friend's sister, 23 years old, died in this traumatic event. Her body was never recovered. My friend died a year later. She and her sister were the only two kids for their mom who became a widow when the girls were 6 and 9. She couldn't attend the funeral.
Showing people these un-aired tapes of what happened on that day is important. They need to be seen.
@Woof Woof lo que pasa es que en TheXvid bloquea Y borra los videos de estos, ya que lo cuentan como violento
@Winds of March Journey/Perry tribute band lol sorry i forgot to keep that in mind. What about those camcorder things though?
@Fuchsia Bomyu Sweetie, in 2001, nobody HAD smart phones. Lol.
@The Gooobley This is history, though. History is often horrible.
Exactly, props to the camera man for filming and most importantly for doing it while surviving. Documenting this day is something we all should respect, and that we should hold onto, not just for history, but for those lost. Bless you all and the victims
my online friend and i were on a call when this happened. she started screaming because she worked in the building next to it. the last thing i heard was rumbling before the line cut off. i later found out she passed away due to debris flying in the window. i couldn’t even say goodbye. my hearts go out to families affected.
Could you imagine the fear and the panic of the people on the planes and in the buildings? Then all the family members how they felt losing loved ones. My heart will always be with them
rip to all the people who lost there lives in this horrifying situation
i can’t imagine the feeling of this happening and witnessing it in person, not from the news on tv, but actually being in the city and seeing that.
The sad thing is, you didn’t even have to be in the planes or buildings to lose your life, many who inhaled the dust cloud that happened when the buildings collapsed ended up getting cancer and dying, not only that but many people also committed suicide due to the trauma of that day..Very sad..
And just being around the building as pieces fall from it and as it collapsed people were killed as well
Not only that but many more people died in car crashes over the following years because they prefered to travel by car rather than by plane.
@Yes i just read that it was illegal in america in 1989. did they use it to build the buildings
i never knew this. now this is even more sad than the people who died in the world trade center and hijacked planes ☹️😔fly high🕊
@Justin Woodward oh I know. I was mostly just bring up the common toxin. I didn't want to get into how aesolized human remains were being breathed in and the copper oxides from Bruning wire could cause liver and lung failure. Carbonic salts which are mostly carcinogens. Benzene formation nitro benzene, methyl benzene, etc. That debris was a moderate yield chemical in essence
Every year I come back to watch these videos and 20 years on, I still can’t wrap my head around the chaos of the day. I can’t imagine being there in person. How would one act? Watching horror unfold in front of your eyes? I think I’d just stand there frozen.
I was there, working at pace university at the time.I got onto the Brooklyn Bridge and by the time i got off the Bridge, 1010 wins radio station reported that the Bridge was now closed.
If the collapsing of the towers were that loud on camera, imagine what they must've sounded like in real life...imagine being up close to the sound...
This truly breaks my heart I wasn’t born when this happens and I’m truly glad this would have scared the life out me it gave me goose Bub just wanting it I couldn’t imagine what they were feeling.
I can’t imagine experiencing something like this just seeing a plane fly straight through a building and then seeing that tower collapse, this was such a horrible event😢
So sad, 19 years later and the World is in even more of a messR.I.P to all those who sadly lost their Lives.
Because people refuse to wake up
America is in a better place concerning conflicts and war 2020..Bush and Blair to blame for this tragedy.May all the perpetrators burn in Hell. RIP to the victims.
this was the beginning of all the mess
@Mr. Cloud Yup. To all.
Almost 2022 and it still this moment gives me goosebumps RIP those innocent souls
I was born in 2007, around 6 years after this happened, but this is horrifying. I can't imagine how many families that were destroyed that day. seeing all those people running and crying/screaming is soul-crushing. sometimes i think about what the US would be like now if this event never even happened. And all those people covered in dust are all either extremely sick/dead now. It's so terrible. The various officers/firemen, and other emergency workers were brave. The cameraman and the news man were also being helpful which was really amazing of them to do. My heart goes out to all the families and victims of this tragic event.
Actually heart breaking footage, may all those brave people rest in peace ♥️ love from the UK we shall never forget
Jesus imagine the horror that you would feel being that close and seeing such a massive building start hurtling towards you like that
The FDNY trucks and ambulances rushing in while everybody was rushing out. Still gives me chills to this day. America's true heroes.
@Fargoth that's what they feed you with. A lot of survivors from the two towers said they heard multiple explosions.
@sarah2930 there was no thermite, the plane cut and or damaged many of the building supports causing the load to be shifted onto the remaining ones, the fire got hotter and like you said jet fuel doesn't burn hot enough to melt steel but it does burn hot enough to the point of weakening the remaining beams, that's why you see the towers bending before they collapsed. The tower just couldn't support its own weight of millions of tonnes ontop of damaged steel beams
@CallumG_01 *It WAS hit by it.
Makes me sick to my stomach.
RIP to everyone and everyone below who couldn't run from the debris. May their souls rest easy.
"OH MY GOD THERE IT GOES"bro that line got me in shivers
This must’ve been what it felt like when raiders entered a village in the olden days. But now we can visually see the carnage and fear we have while we are alive. It’s terrifying to know but enlightening to accept that that’s how we are as people and we’ll do better learning from this if it ever does happen again
So many years ago. I was in the 5th grade when this happened. Here I am 30 years old now. Bless the families♥️ Peace & Love
if anybody's ever been to the memorial pools that were constructed since, it's a very solemn experience. no one talks. you can almost feel it in the air how many people died there.
i hung out with this girl sometimes when i was in high school. we went to the same beauty shop to get our hair done. she went on a trip to nyc with her parents and she went on snapchat and went “okay guys so we’re at the 9/11 memorial 😝” and her mom said “jessica, put your phone away. have some respect” and i’ve never been more disgusted in my life. i don’t get how someone does that in a place that you’re supposed to honor those who died in such a tragic way.
I went a few months ago with my family. We say the 9/11 museum underneath as well.
@K P try it again and we’ll come for more
That’s what my mom said she just got back a few days ago she said just walking up they got teary eyes
This is a fact... it feels so crazy
Imagine just being in the vicinity on this day. I wasn’t alive at the time, but I can only imagine how fast people’s hearts were beating that day in that area.
2:07 I swear to God, I thought that was Mariska Hargitay. I'm still not convinced it isn't. Also, that news anchor yelling encouragement to the cameraman still hurts my heart to this day. I feel like we don't have that kind of compassion anymore.
Man that news reporter really took charge. Wasn't taking no for an answer. First time I'm seeing this particular footage. Heartbreaking man.
What absolutely incredible and heroic camera work, to document such important pieces of history in the face of danger is just amazing
I think that's funny lol glory to russia!
This is historical footage and it must be seen by as many people as possible. As a 17 year old who was born two years after 9/11, its hard for people in my generation to understand the impact of 9/11. Footage like this helps people like me understand the impact of 9/11 and what it was really like. I thank the uploader for sharing this document with us. This is such a raw and surreal experience, I have goosebumps knowing what happened on that day.
The Alan Jackson song about 9/11 was accurate: it was like the world just stopped. I didn’t leave the TV aside from grabbing drinks or using the bathroom for probably 14 hours that day. The paralyzing thing was thinking “Is there anything else?”
@Osama Bin Laden ?
@Derek Lavernia i was 6 years old when this happened
Watching this makes me want to cry it’s so sad. This was a horrible thing that happened.
RIP to all lost. I pray for the families M dad had EMT training and ran to help people by the Millenium hotel. He was blown in the air when the tower fell and landed blocks away.The camera people did amazing things for this film.
3:13 respect to those first responders going to what everyone running away fromThey sacrifice their life’s for our own safety we should appreciate it
My heart still breaks watching this 😢
Why is this age restricted? This is history! Even if it was horrible, we still need to learn about it
Amen to that
It’s age restricted cause we don’t want to see 5 year old witness people dying in fear
there after you full details, it has nothing to do with content.
They don't even teach about 9/11 in a lot of schools these days
Bro every time I watch something like this makes me shiver in fear.The fear in those people.The fear of the passengers.The fear of the people in the towers and the Pentagon.For souls who have been lost, you have been remembered and will be never forgotten.
Imagine your relative going on one of those planes telling you just before they lift off "I'll call you when I've landed... Just heartbreaking
The fact a human did this to their own kind is nonsense
Being someone who was just in NYC seeing the 9/11 memorial- seeing the videos, sent fear into my heart, but pain as well…Pray for the people who lost loved ones, and remember the ones who were lost.“That day isn’t just a nightmare, it’s where innocents, became heroes.” - Me
I was just there the other day. It was very moving but the memorial was beautiful. I’m glad I got to see it in person.
Camera man did a great job filming while staying alive.
@Tala Muffy yeah, especially considering the sheer amount of weight camera’s used in news are
This comment meets more then the eye can see
number 1 survival tip:need: camerawhat to do: press record when in life death situation
Don't you know ? Cameraman always survive, they are invincible ! 😂
Even now, I cannot believe this event. I watched live from the moment it happened and am still as shocked now as I were then. Very far from the biggest disaster in the world as one cop called it, but in my lifetime it is up there with the top 3.
Props to all the hundreds of firemen and some who sacrificed their lives in this moment.
Seeing the towers collapse sends intense chills down my spine.. 😟
i wasn’t even alive and i almost started crying watching this
@Shobby I'm from Canada. I'm just interested in this history. It's not like every person here is from the US.
@Jhonshmo yeah never forget that your own US president did it at the time smh
Exact same it's insane to think this was only 20 years ago. It was a horrible event and we will never forget it.
Me too friend, me too. Shows you have empathy and compassion for others. Never lose that ability
Imagine how terrifying this must have been, Rest In Peace to the people who died during this you will not be forgotten 🙏 🕊
@•Epic Horse• 🤣 1 million people did not freaking die when the towers were blown up by govt.... just over 3000. It's sad too
@•Epic Horse• that is just way more than u think it was
@squarebear619 Yeah, the kind of damage those attacks have done since that day is extreme. Drug addiction and alcoholism is up in people who were there that day, ptsd and depression as well. They get all kind of diseases and cancers, its horrible. In fact more people who were there that day have died since that day as a result than have died on that day.
@Seth freakin rollins: Oh yes I definitely agree with you there. Because of him the war of Afghanistan began during his presidency until the way in 2021
Rest In Peace that the people died and I cried so hard when I heard the towers got damaged even my family cried the said back before they saw it on tv and very one cried.☹️😖💔
It’s crazy to see the cops equally as panicked as the regular people, I was 5 when this happened and remember my mom watching tv in horror and going to church with my dad later that night, I’m 25 now and can’t imagine how crazy that would be to see in real time as an adult
This will be a day we never forget. May god rest the souls of the fallen.
I wasnt alive when this happened but to whoever was or whoever lost their close friends or family to this, im truly truly sorry that it had to happen
“Come on glen, you can do it!” I love how he encouraged the cameraman to keep running. Shows how much he cares
Good news Glen is alive and well today. Well at least 2 months ago, when I last touched up on this Video
truly an amazing man.
Glen is carrying a big camera, batteries, and likely a lot of other gear.
To anyone who died on this tragic day, may they Rest In Peace. Fly high. 🕊
When the reporter said “Come on Glen, you got it!” That was so sad
5:17 Can't believe how still he held the camera. He must have been absolutely frozen
I was in the 8th grade in science class…this gives me chills😪…we all hoped that the Sears tower wouldn’t get hit too, even though we were all in the suburbs….I swear this is still scary🥺
I wasn’t born yet when this happened, and I think it’s important for people like me to see these videos, because it reminds us that this is actually real and it’s actually something that people went through and not just a scary story
@Winds of March Journey/Perry tribute band he was sheltered
@Alexius Corylus This is why I've never like high rises...Champlaign towers now, too.
@Kat999 Was he born here? How do you miss it? It's as integral as Pearl Harbor was to earlier generations
@Janelle Mora yeah you are right. You are living Proof of it being 9 years old at the time with the majority of your overall growing up happening post 9/11. The world has always been the same(ups and downs) so I don’t quite get the last thing you said.
