5 Things You May Not Know About 9-11

With the 10th anniversary of 9-11 upon us, all of the News Channels and TV Networks have been running memorial specials, and will all weekend.  As much as I don’t want to relive the memories of some of the things we saw and heard that day, I can’t help but to watch.   September 11, 2001 is an event that will never be forgotten, but I was surprised that there were still some facts that some people may have never heard, and I thought I would share.


There were 20 people pulled from the rubble of the World Trade Center alive. Including 2 cops that were buried for nearly 22 hours, and a lady from the 64th floor that was buried for 27 hours.

Behind Americans, the British lost the second highest number of people. All together more than 80 different nationalities lost a life in the 9-11 attacks.  372 non-americans were murdered that day, counting 67 British citizens.

One company lost more than one-third of their employees. Cantor-Fitzgerald had 960 employees on September 10th.  658 were murdered on 9-11.  In the past 10 years, Cantor-Fitzgerald has donated more than 180 million dollars to the families of those lost employees.

The World Trade Center fire burned for 99 days. The fire was not completely put out until December 19th… 99 days after the attack.

The steel from the World Trade Center was sold. More than 185,000 tons of steel were left in the rubble of the World Trade Center.  Most of it has been sold to China and India, but the rest has been used for memorials.
