SURVIVOR STORIES

Last two to be pulled alive from WTC tell how they were saved
Port Authority Police officer Will Jimeno and Sgt John McLoughlin were virtually dead centre in the 16-acre complex when the first building collapsed, burying them in debris.

Four missing Irish alive in NY hospital
FOUR Irish construction workers, feared dead by their families in the World Trade Center attack, turned up alive, although seriously injured, under different names in a Manhattan hospital.

Everything went pitch black. That's when I thought it was certainly all over
It was still early in the morning. Not all the lawyers and secretaries were in the office yet. I was at my desk, working away. Suddenly there was a huge bang and the building shook violently, swayed back and forth. I tried to stand but couldn't. Even the windowpanes seemed to bend.

Cork FDNY Officer recalls events
MARY Dorgan in Cork City must have trembled when she saw the images of New York City's monumental twin towers burning and crumbling. But not solely because of the brutality of this terrorist act. Mary's son Michael is a New York City firefighter, one of a handful of Irish-born FDNY officers who were on call when terror struck from the sky.

In search of a friend
IN June, I served as best man at the wedding of my best friend, who, up until Tuesday, worked on the 103rd floor of the World Trade Center. At 9:59 a.m. on that bloody day, I stood at Fifth Avenue and 25th Street, and saw a tornado of dust and debris form down at the end of the block, like a force of nature, which the clouds were certainly not.
