Overview

8:46 AM "… there is something not right, out of order, about the view, Tad Hanc noticed from his 86th-floor windows looking north. Studying the magnificent Manhattan skyline, Tad began to take it in. And then it registered in all its horrifying aspects. Lowering his eyes slightly, Tad saw a large passenger airliner heading due south over Fifth Avenue just missing the top of the Empire State Building, flying very, very fast-heading straight toward Tower One-directly to his office-aimed right at him!" This is but one of fifteen heart-stopping stories the author has included in From The Inside Out Harrowing Escapes from the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center. From the oral accounts of people who began that morning living their normal, everyday lives, this book is a valuable collection of the human experience-documenting that intangible essence of bravery, selflessness, and generosity of spirit that exists, often dormant inside us all, rising to the forefront in times of crisis.
