The Video

I too lived at 41 River Terrace--just 10 floors below Bri and Bob. But after shooting out my window, I left the building and captured footage on the streets below. For the past five years I’ve always thought about what it might have been like if I DID NOT evacuate the building and just stayed as they did. Watching this clip gave me chills. FYI. My footage is at this URL and edited together by my friend Even Coyne Maloney:

A very unique view of the event. Why did you edit out the frames when the second plane hit? All we heard after that, was you saying it was a military plane. Were you not allowed to show it? Since it was a military plane?

Please read the FAQ for answers to those questions.

The missing footage of the 2nd plane in mid-air makes me very suspicious. What reason could you have for removing it? Have you been paid off by the FBI?

I too am concerned at the apparent editing of this footage. You are clearly filming at the time of the second plane impact and during both collapses, yet your film is cut just at those three crucial moments? If nothing untoward has happened, was it simply a case of you quickly turning off, and then back on, your camcorder? Why? I would appreciate it if you could offer an explanation because I find this footage rather concerning. Thank you.

We've said this before, but just to confirm, since we get this question/comment often:

Any editing or cuts were a) unintentional (camera was off or down) or b) to save time/space by removing inconsequential shots. There was nothing of substance that was removed from the video.

Wow...
I have no family or friends that lived in NY much less worked at the WTC but september 11, 2001 has never left my heart. I have had many dreams about it. Thank you for sharing your video. May God bless those that lost someone on this tragic day.

Firstly thank you for sharing. I have seen various video footage from that terrible day but none have moved me to tears like yours did. I think it was listening to.. Bri..is it.. that did it, the genuine emotion and the shock of what had happened. My heart goes out to you and all in America who lost loved ones, thank you once again for sharing. Mel :)

Bedenklich, dass hier bei dieser wichtigen Footage, aufgenommen von "unabhängigen" Privaten, der grösstes Diskussionspunkt darstellt dass sie geschnitten wurde. Was für ne schöne Webseite ihr da habt. Habt ihr die selbst gemacht? Rofl
