ON Tuesday, September 11, history is remembering the events of September 11, 2001 with a new two-hour documentary: 9/11: Escape From the Towers on DStv History Channel 186 at 6:15pm.
The documentary which will also show on Sunday, September 16 on the same channel provides a unique perspective on the tragic events through interwoven stories of survivors from two floors of the World Trade Center, some closest to the impact zone.
In addition, 9/11: Escape From the Towers will showcase never-before-told stories from occupants of the 81st floor in the North Tower and the 77th floor in the South Tower of the World Trade Center.
And provide an unsettling perspective of what it was like to be inside the buildings on that fateful day, as individuals came together as a group to make it to safety.
The World Trade Center towers each consisted of 110 floors and on September 9, 2011, every floor faced a distinctive set of challenges.
In this poignant documentary, survivors from one floor in each tower, most speaking publicly for the first time, share how they started the day as colleagues and ended it with their lives forever intertwined.
Their experiences on 9/11 are recounted in astounding and visual detail which include two men who volunteered to carry a stranger down 68 perilous flights of stairs; a small group determined to get their pregnant co-worker to safety and others who fought through flames and falling debris just one floor below the impact zone.
9/11: Escape From the Towers delivers deeply personal recollections of how it truly felt to be inside the Twin Towers on that day and how people came together for the good of others, while also remembering those they lost.
So make a date with DStv History Channel 186 and experience the harrowing account that took place on September 11 2001.
