The Chaos Of The World Trade Centre

Better Essays
This is chaos, a catastrophe. A commercial airliner has smashed into the side of the north tower of the World Trade Centre, right below me, for reasons unknown. I’m standing here. Right by the window, simply screaming, screaming and shouting; desperately hoping for another chance at life. Below me they’re running; they don’t see me. I’m an insignificant life, hanging out of this window, desperately begging for someone to save me. I’ll never stop. I’ll never give up. I’m a fighter, ready to keep fighting, fighting for my life.

I wonder why it flies so close, so close to our building. I shut my eyes, scared of the future. The plane drifts and smashes into the other tower, the aftermath sending shockwaves, one after another. Bang! Bang! Bang! More explosions, more smoke. This terror is unfolding. It’s been nearly forty-five minutes since evacuation started after we were hit, surely there cannot be more.

Nothing but darkness and the dead.
