Hm. From the old days of the forum:

Then something odd happened. The grey, smoke-shrouded silhouette changed. It was so orderly, so tidy and the resulting dust cloud made it difficult to tell what was going on. Everyone went silent - so silent that you could hear the shouting and screaming through people’s phones and headphones. Then people did start to panic. We tried to call home to let people know that we were okay, and that we weren’t going to be on our flight home. Unfortunately everyone was phoning each other, and the only person that we could get through to was my mate’s mum who had no idea what was going on and didn’t realise that everyone else’s families were in a bit of a flap. The decision was then taken to evacuate the airport, but before anything could happen, the second tower went down. Was this as much of a shock? Yes, I think it was. It wasn’t totally clear what had happened to the first tower – as odd as it may sound, those sitting at home watching the television probably knew what has happening better than we did – but with the second tower there was no doubt, and turning around for a last look as we were being marshalled out of the room just as it went down made it feel even more like the world was coming down around our heads.

My mate’s sister’s heart stopped on a night out and she died before the ambulance could get to her. She was 19 years old.
