9/11 Victim. World Trade Center, Twin Towers attack. Al Qaeda.Add to Cart Add to Lightbox Download
18 September 2001. New York, New York - USA.
Post 9/11 World Trade Center attack.
Looking down upon the remains of the World Centre Twin Tower complex a week after the coordinated Al Queda terror attack. The view is from the apartment of John Philips, a resident granted special permission to enter his once luxury apartment just 2 blocks from where the World Trade Center Twin Towers used to stand. His apartment is now filled with dust and debris from the collapsed towers. John and residents of the building were evacuated following the attack which cut off water and electricity supplies. A week after the attack, residents were given just 15 minutes to gather necessary belongings and leave their apartments which by default rendered them homeless. Residents were warned to check their balconies for victims of the Twin Towers who might have fallen to their deaths.
In the chaos of 9/11, John's sister Dr Sneha Ann Philip disappeared. John claimed she used to walk past the Twin Towers every morning on her way to work. He fears she might be a victim of the coordinated Al Qaeda attack which claimed over 2,000 victims at the site of the Twin Towers.
It was later discovered that his sister was indeed just one more of the many victims killed in the attack.
