Man’s LIVE 911 call as tower collapses

It’s very hard to watch this video that is matched to Kevin Cosgrove’s 911 call from the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001.


There is one thing that every one of us eventually succumbs to: death.  Every human that has inhabited the earth eventually has to deal with the grim reaper.  When it is your time, expected or not, life is over for us all in a single nanosecond and everything goes black.  There is nothing any of us can do…absolutely nothing.  The day of 9/11/01 should never be forgotten.   These poor souls didn’t have a chance when the final decision was made to execute this horror upon them.

  1. “It is the worst atrocity ever thrown over a nation as their own government turned on its own people and massacred young and old alike.” ???????

    Their OWN Government?????

  2. “It is the worst atrocity ever thrown over a nation as their own government turned on its own people and massacred young and old alike. These poor souls didn’t have a chance when the final decision was made to execute this horror upon them.”

    Wait.. what??? Is this supposed to be some kind of conspiracy theory bullshit?

  3. It’s troubling to see that the sadness of hearing a person’s final seconds is lost on a bunch of people who seem more concerned about an simple editing error.

    🙁

    • I get your point but it was more than an editing error…. it was a profound misstatement that I overlooked when I copied and pasted it. It left a few people puzzled and that was not my intention. The video and audio is so powerful I don’t want the text to take away from it.

  4. Well Jonco, speaking for myself (as only I am qualified to do so…usually), I read the text, and assumed that it was not your intent to have it there, so I overlooked it. I didn’t get all bent out of shape about it, because I figured you’d simply forgotten to omit it when you’d posted it here.

    I gave you the benefit of the doubt, and I was right to do so.

  5. If you think that the sadness of the event was lost because of an “editing error”, you’re mistaken. I also figured it was an oversight but wanted to point it out instead of letting it slide by (and perhaps having others think Jonco was a whack job conspiracy theorist!). Maybe I worded it too strongly for you, but I worked in NYC and while I didn’t directly know anyone in the WTC, I knew people who lost friends and family and how deeply it affected them. I walked through Penn Station for weeks looking at pictures of missing people that everyone knew were dead so seeing people that disrespect their memory through conspiracy theories makes me angry (and Jonco, that is NOT directed at you).

    Sorry, I don’t mean to get worked up about this, but to suggest that the editing was more important than the content is asinine.
