Knew someone who perished?: Yes

I was a porter for ABM. My job was to maintaine the VIP entrance at Wtc building 1 on west street. At 1st it was the loud sound of the engine. As I looked up I saw the plane over my head. When the plane hit the buiding I ran inside, as I entered the building to get away from falling debris I witnessed the elevator doors blowing out and the marble falling from the ceiling. I then turned around to get out of the building. As I reach the second revolving doors I was blasted out into the west street highway. That’s what I witnessed on 9.11.01. I was then taken to the hospital.
