On Tuesday, September 11, 2001 New York University student Caroline Dries and her roommate, Megan, awoke at 8:46 am (EST) to the sound of what they believed to be an explosion.
When Caroline noticed smoke coming from the North Tower of The World Trade Center she began filming the events from her 32nd floor room at 200 Water Street. Their initial confusion is caught on camera as the woman speculate what is taking place a short distance away and Megan frantically explains the situation to her mother over the phone. Megan began seeing what she correctly believed to be people falling from the North Tower and shortly afterward at 9:03 am , the South Tower is attacked. Megan realizes they are witnessing a terrorist attack and immediately insists they evacuate the building. Feeling even less safe on the street, the pair decide to return to their dormitory with friends who watch in horror as the South Tower collapsed at 9:59 am.
