CHICAGO BEARS RADIO -- WBBM Newsradio 780 "Traffic on the 8's"

September 11, 2001 8:46 AM EDT — American Airlines Flight 11 (Boeing 767) was crashed into the World Trade Center’s North Tower. Jules Naudet, a French cameraman, and Pavel Hlava, a Czech immigrant, filmed the crash.

September 11, 2001 10:06 AM EDT — “United 93, do you hear Cleveland?” United Airlines Flight 93 crash near Shanksville, PA.

NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology) estimated that about 17,400 civilians were in the World Trade Center complex at the time of the attacks, while turnstile counts from the Port Authority suggest that 14,154 people were typically in the Twin Towers by 8:45 a.m.

The vast majority of people below the impact zone safely evacuated the buildings, along with 18 people who were in the impact zone in the south tower. 1,366 people died who were at or above the floors of impact in the North Tower. According to the Commission Report, hundreds were killed instantly by the impact, while the rest were trapped and died after the tower collapsed. As many as 600 people were killed instantly or were trapped at or above the floors of impact in the South Tower.

At least 200 people jumped to their deaths from the burning towers, landing on the streets and rooftops of adjacent buildings hundreds of feet below. Some of the occupants of each tower above its point of impact made their way upward toward the roof in hope of helicopter rescue, but the roof access doors were locked. No plan existed for helicopter rescues, and on September 11, the thick smoke and intense heat would have prevented helicopters from conducting rescues from the roof.

A total of 411 emergency workers who responded to the scene died as they attempted to rescue people and fight fires. The New York City Fire Department (FDNY) lost 341 firefighters and 2 FDNY paramedics.

A total of 23 New York City Police Department police officers died.

A total of 37 Port Authority Police Department police officer died.

A total of eight EMT’s and paramedics from private EMS companies were killed.

A total of 125 people killed in the Pentagon upon impact of AA Flight 77.

19* Al-Qaeda terrorists died as they hijacked four commercial passenger jet airliners.

In total 2,993 people, including the hijackers, died in the attacks. At least 200 people jumped and/or fell to their deaths.
